There is no perfect way to do this, but the answer really depends on your congratulation.

The reminder is only displayed when logging onto a machine that is a member of the domain and authenticates to a GC when logging in.

If the remote users are using computers that are members of the domain, it slikly that they are connecting to the VPN after logging in which means they used cached credentials rather than authenticating to a GC. These users can have the reminder displayed however if they log into the VPN before logging into their PC as this would facilitate the connection tot domain to authenticate to a GC. Both VPN and Nortel VPN clients support this.

If the VPN clients are on machines that are not domain members, there is no way that I know of to display the password expiration reminder. l have had to settle with using OWA to display the reminder if exchange is used or sending e-mails on some regular interval to remind people to change their password.

Thanks for your reply but still there is no acceptable solution that will help me with this issue.
Is there any way to force it thru Domain Global Policy at least twice a day?

Unfortunately there is not any ability like that built into Active Directory or Group Policy. The standard reminder is only activated when logging into the domain and authenticating with a GC, so by design that is not something you can schedule.

This is something I have just had to work around through other means like social engineering. Their may be third party utilities that can satisfy your needs but I have not tested any to make any recommendations.
