When I’m away from my network/domain on my laptop. I login as I usually do with my username, password and domain (as I would at work). After about 2 mins of waiting, my system finally logins in to my normal desktop. I know it must be searching for the domain controller, then finally gives up and logs me in. is there a timeout period that XP uses when trying to authenticate to the domain? Can I lesson this timeout period?
Bottom line is I’m impatient and want the system to log in faster when I’m "not online at work". I also want access to my same desktop settings etc and not have to use a local logon profile. Hope this makes sense...thanks for your help.
