OK I am now connected to the company server, and I can surf the internet at the same time. So everything is cool, right? NO way. No big deal but what I am seeing is that I have to map to the vpn server everytime I log in. If I leave the box "Reconnect at Login" checked, it doesnt work. I have to disconect the drive and then do another map. I s there a way around this , or do I have to live with it?

When you are not connected, does the drive appear on my computer with a red x in my comptuer under network drives?  

Mine are setup like that, where they are red x'd when I'm not logged into the vpn, but when I connect in the mapped drives work then - but they are always there.

What OS are you using?

I am using XP for the client. The drives are NOT red X'd when I disconnect, but they do say they are disconnected. When I start the vpn again, they still are disconnected, but when I go to map the to the same letter I get an error that they are being used. I can map the to a different letter. I f the client is hard wire connected I will get the red X's. I have even unchecked to reconnect at login, but the drive is still there

They don't appear in Networked drives in My computer?  They should stay there even after its disconnected, and once you reconnect those links should work again.

I got it. I was in too big of a hurry to reconnect. If I wait for about 30 seconds after I connect I can access the server partition again. Thanks
