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.

"\\PC30\Company\IT Department\Phone Support Calls" (Does not Work)

"\\10.3.10.2\Company\IT Department\Phone Support Calls" (Works)

\\TERA4\Backups (Does not Work)

\\10.3.10.1\Backups (Works)

hy, you mus to configure hosts file from c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc
for example:  192.168.1.30    www.contoso.com  or 192.168.1.30    contoso

Create a host record in the dns server for these entries
PC30 - 10.3.10.2

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
