Hi Experts,
I have a user that has a laptop that is used mostly remotelly.
When he is in the office, I have a GPO that forces the homepage to be the local intranet.
When he is away, he would like to have the VPN page as homepage.

How can I make this. I am thinking about GPO for the specific computer, but how to know if is connected in the office or remotelly.
We block regular users to make changes in IE. If a network management tool is installed, it would be better if restricts the users from making changes in the configuration.
Please advise.

If using IE 7 or higher, how about setting home pages to both - one tab will go to intranet page, other will go to VPN page.  Another option is to add IE shortcut on desktop or start menu which points explicitly to VPN page (or vice versa) - path would look something like "iexplorer.exe www.corpvpn.com".  You can actually use Group Preference (or a Group Policy for that matter) to push it out.
