How can I set up a Server 2003 R2 VPN so that when users connect remotely using the VPN, they automatically get connected to a network share using a drive letter?

When users logon to the network within the office, they automatically get this network drive mapped through a logon script.

How can I make it so that these same users will get the same network drive mapped to the exact same network share when they connect remotely from home over the internet using the VPN?

Currently when they connect using the VPN, the network drive mapping isn't established.

I am not aware of any such option, but you can provide your users with a batch flle which they can execute so that network drive is mapped.

One thing that I am not sure will work but could resolve your issue, you can enable offline files support for your shared drives, offline share folders are configured to connect and synchronize the files as soon as they are connected to the network so it could be a good work around for your problem.
