authentacate to win2k server over vpn

Hello all

            I hope this is a network question and not a os/sql one but here we go. I am usieng remote access over a von client. I can map and use outlook over the web into my home as if i was at work.
            We have an aplication that uses sql to connect it(sorry if i worded that wrong i know nothing of swl). now how it seems to work is sql checks if you are a valid network user then loges you into the database(application).
            the problem is seeing s i am at home i dont log into the network so i dont show up as a valid user and it does not send me a login box like outlook does.
           
 know there has to be a work around some where
