Hi All

I have had a request from a user who works remotely (there laptop is a company one joined to domain), when they are working at home and click on a shortcut to an access database that is located on the server they would like the PC to connect into the server automatically, they are sure this is how it used to work.

They had SBS 2003 and we have just put in an SBS 2008 server, on looking at the old server RRAS was not setup so it couldnt have been a VPN.

Is there another way this could have been happening?

Thanks

It really sounds like the user is confused or perhaps it's using a non-MS VPN solution. I'd verify there's not another VPN client on the laptop.

Opening  an Access type data base over a VPN is asking for data corruptiion.  I strongly suggest using RWW to a desktop or a TS inside the SBS network for this type of work.
