We recently created a new SBS 2003 server for our office and one of our salesman had some files synced to another server on the domain, now he is having problems opening the files when he is offline. He can open the files when connected to the network but not when he is home.

Could it be that there are references in your files pointing to data on one of your office servers, e.g. .dot files, fonts, printers, macros, or is there sort of a centralized access management which he can't reach when offline?

The files can be reached when they are in the office and show up even when they are not connected but they just can not open them.

The only error is that it will not sync. It will sync when they are in the office but not when using VPN.
