cannot save MS Project (MPP) file stored in Sharepoint over VPN

Hi, we have an issue where we edit the project file which is stored in a sharepoint document library and then when we try to save it comes up saying the file is locked and cannot be saved, we then have to save a copy, this issue is intermittent but a nuisance...

We do not have the issue when editing in the office, only when connected through vpn...

thanks in advance

delete all the files out of the Content.MSO folder and attempt to open the document again from SharePoint.

Prior to deleting the files you may want to copy the files because it is also possible that the version stored on the hard drive is more recent than the one stored in SharePoint
