Hello all,

All laptops on our domain (win2003) have the users' my docs redirected. When laptops are used on our LAN all is great. When laptops leave the LAN and users log on, the redirection still attepmts to synch folders causing delays and errors. I know there is an option that asks the user if they want to initiate a folder synch, but unfortunately, i cant use thios feature.

The questiuon is: can i disable folder sync when a laptop is either not connected to the domain network or when it is on VPN but connection is very slow.

There is a GPO option under:
Computer Configuration | Administrative templates | Windows components | Network | Offline files | "configure slow link properties"
where you can define a slow link, by speed, and it will disable automatic synchronization.

I'm having the exact same problem at this moment, but my biggest question is what value should be entered in that field?
