Can't open shortcuts to files or folders with pc name in the path over VPN.

If I define the shortcut on my desktop like below it will not open over the Cisco VPN client it does however work fine in the domain environment.  I have to change it to the ip path not the UNC and it will work.

hy, you mus to configure hosts file from c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc
for example:  or    contoso
Create a host record in the dns server for these entries

make sure that you set properly what you are returnig as config to your EASY VPN clients...
I think, you can't resolve anything corporate by fgdn when you are in VPN...
