Interesting problem. I have somehow managed to make a completly external network. I can access the network from hom through vpn and ftp, but i can not join my computer to the domain or login to it at the office. I keep getting errors saying the network name can not be found or domain is unavailable. also when i login on vpn the only thing that shows up on the network is my own computer. I am running the dns and dhcp off a server running windows 2003 and my computer is pointed to that server for both dns and dhcp. Any help here would be great.

This sounds like it is definitely a DNS issue.  You can get out on the internet from withing the network, no problems though?  I would take a hard look at my DNS Server, for beginners.  Make sure you have that server listed as the primary, and attempt to repair the connection if xp, or do an ipconfig /flushdns then an ipconfig /registerdns to reregister.
