I have several clients communicate over a VPN to the main office to an SBS server.
There is a local 2003 Std server set up as a catalog server that they authenticate to.
If you reboot the local 2003 Std server the clients in the remote office can access the internet and all resources at the main office on the other side of the VPN.  Within about 5-10 minutes they loose access to the internet but can still ping the local server, and VPN gateway but not anything past the IP of the gateway.  I am trying to figure out what could be stopping them.  It works fine for a short period of time after rebooting the local catalog server.  By the way to browser on the catalog server will also stop working when the clients do as well.  After the reboot the local 2003 Std svr (catalog svr) will have IE access as well then it stops working.  Not sure where to look.  Can any one tell me what to look for?
