I have a user that just came to our organization from another company and he is bringing his own laptop. His machine was filled with viruses\spyware, and after a good two days trying to remove it all, I finally told him lets just reinstall XP. We have laptop users who connect to our off network, so I dont have to worry about them hurting any machines in our WIN2k3 domain. This new user is really pushing to have me connect him to our domain once I reinstall Windows, and I am hesitant given the state of his machine when he arrived. My question is what methods are used to allow traveling users to connect to a domain. I have never really had to do it in the past and am not sure how others go about handling this. We have Trend Micro server suite as our organization/s antivirus solution. Ideas?
