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
TERA4 - 10.3.10.1

I had to add 10.3.10.2 as the default DNS while setting up the group authetication on the Cisco VPN 3005 concentrator.
