I am able to make a secure VPN connection through our Firewall from an aircard or from home.  I am able to ping and connect remotely to PCs in my office.  But what I really need is a way to access our shared files on the server after creating the tunnel.  Connecting remotely is slow and painful when you only need a file off of the shared drive.  Plus my intention is to eliminate a desktop and a laptop for the guys.  I am using LDAP so I am able to pass the network login username and password when logging into firewall.  And my shared drives show up (but maybe this is from previous wired connection).  But They are not populated with folders and files.  I want access to these files with the correct permissions as defined by Active Directory.  Can anybody help me?

you should be able to map the drive and upon logon reconnect using VPN. Unless the DNS resolution is an issue? Can you ping the server with the shares by DNS name?
