We have a Windows 2000 Server. It is a domaincontroller and has an Active Directory.

There are several groups. When we work in our local network, everythings works fine.
The users are only granted to view the maps they have access-rights to.

But when the same user makes a connection via VPN, he/she can see every share and even worse: delete everything etc...
They are not member of the administrator-group!
