A remote Workstation (Windows XP) requires access (Login) to the Server Domain. A DSL service is used for Internat Access.  What do I need at the Workstation (Software/Hardware) for
the AD Users to Login to the Netork Domain?

    Accepted Solution

    You're going to need to setup a VPN connection between the Server and workstation.  Then in the AD properties of the user account click the Dial-In tab and select "Allow access" for Remote Access.

    What's the OS of your office server and brand of office router?  They may have this feature built-in.
