Is it possible for a remote employee to connect to our main office via VPN and sync up the my documents folder?  Currently, those employees working in the office are configured to redirect the my documents data to the server.  I would like that to happen for remote employees too, if possible.   Thanks!

They could... are the remote employees using laptops or workstations that are members of the domain?  Or are then connecting from their own machines?

It's a mixture.  Some have their own pc's at home.  Others have laptops the company provided.  Does the machine need to be a member of the domain then?

Found the problem after you asked about being a member of the domain.  There was no local DNS being assigned.  Thank you for the assistance.

FYI, for those that have their own pc's at home... if they have a desktop machine in the office they shouldn't use a VPN connection.  Instead they should use Remote Web Workplace (see http://sbsurl.com/rww) to connect directly to their office workstation.  This allows users to have full access to all software on their workstations as well.

For the laptop users, you should be using the Small Business Server Connection Manager (which is downloaded from Remote Web Workplace) as the VPN client.  This will ensure that all settings are correct, and if you change anything all they have to do is download the new client.
