Ibrahim,
It looks like this only allows you to browse files, it does con give you the ability to connect to the domain.

it is clearly mentioned, if i am not wrong.

---- PLEASE READ ----
Whilst FileBrowser only requires a computer name or IP address, username and password, configuring home computers to share files and folders isn't so easy. If you have any problems with this, please use our online troubleshooter and our guide documents, and if they don't get you connected please contact us.

FileBrowser is an essential app but it's not magic and it doesn't bypass network security. It will not be able to access your files on your home computer from a remote location without your computer being accessible FROM the Internet and SMB file sharing being enabled. Please see our web site for options on getting connected from a remote location.

¦ Connects using the CIFS/SMB protocol to "Windows 2000 and above", MacOS from 10.5 and most (but not all) NAS drives.
¦ Does NOT support AFP.

This works great for connecting to a Windows Server. Simply connect VPN, add server (by name) and your good to go...
