Log in with network credentials offsite

Hi,

One of our users received a PC from the main office. The main office set up a local username and password for him, but forgot to log on as him at once to cache his domain login. Is there a way for that user, who's remote and has no access to our network except vpn, to log in as himself (domain account) so it can be cached?

Thanks,

Mike.

what sort of VPN do you have set? site to site or user?

if its site to site you can manaully set the DNS so it can resolve the domain name for the main office. Once the domain is contactable you would be able to login and pull the profile down the VPN, however spped will depend on the amount of data and bandwidth.

is that any use?

It is not a site to site, otherwise this would not be a problem. It is a VPN client installed on the machine.

i cant really see of a good way then, i guess if it is really desperate you could publish AD etc onto a public IP, add an dns entry on the pc and try and connect through the web. I hopever really, would not ever recommend doing it this was as the are so many security issuses it cold type them all day. You would be better send the pc back and getting the login cache, then even attempting this.
