I am an Exchange System Administrator in a support role. We connect over VPN (Aventail) to our customers network. I need to know how to run vbscript on my local desktop and get information about servers in my customers location. The script should run from my local desktop and retrieve information about servers connected over VPN.

Thank You

If you are on their network via VPN, then you should be considered a part of their network.  The only thing that would restrict you, would probably be if they have ports closed down to vpn clients for security reasons.

If your not being restricted like that, then you should be able to use the tools that VBScript has available to run scripts on remote machines...
