Change Logon Script for Remote Users

Posted on 2007-11-19
Last Modified: 2008-11-01
We have recently migrated our own Cisco VPN box to our corporate headquarters in New York. This works fine for file browsing however very slowly (ping times are nearly 500ms). We are part of a global AD 2003 forest.
We have a great VBS script that runs perfectly from within the network. However it seems to fail and stalls when running through this VPN.
What I want to run is a very simple batch file that only maps drives when a user is logging on through the VPN.

Which policy should I be checking for? I presume you mean if the logon script is being applied by GP
