Secondary home page

I would like to default all domain users Internet Home Page to our Intranet site, but what if they are mobile users and not on the network, is there a way to have a "Back up" home page?

I think you might be better off with User Education.... If the Home Page doesnt open away from the Office, then just let them know thats ok. If it fails WHILE connected, to VPN/Network, then they know they have a problem.....

well, you can set the intranet home page via GPO and if they are on IE7 or above, then can have more than one home page.

however, the hard part is differentiating between desktop users and laptop users.

if you add all your laptop users to a new security group, then that will help you.

you can create two GPO's - one that is applied exclusively to your laptop users that points the user to your corporate website and one that is excluded from laptop users that points the user to the intranet.

Is it possible to do this (two home pages) with a  GPO ? if one is not available (off corp network) then the other one would be there. I don't see it as a problem if one page is a 404 error  when the enduser is out of the office.

Ah...that maybe a little harder then as I don't think the GPO's have any concept of multiple home pages that appeared in IE7.

Let me have a dig around on my 2003 server and I'll get back to you.
