What do you mean with "local copying"?
Also, are we talking about the legacy IPSec VPN-client, or the newer Anyconnect-client?

Local copying = copying to the laptop c: drive from the VPN window.

What difference would it make if I used legacy or Anyconnect?

Ok. Your answer confuses me. What is "VPN window"?
Maybe you can post a few screen dumps?

Let me state my question another way.  Remember I am only a layman when it comes to this.

Scenario: (not real but desired)

1. I have a laptop I connect remotely through a VPN.
2. I login to the network.
3. I do not want the ability at this point to copy files (security) to my laptop.

If you are familiar with VPN's you should be familiar with this commonly used scenario.

I want to know how is #3 above configured?

All work is to be done on the remote system and any work which needs to be saved can only be saved to the remote system.

No, you cannot do that with VPN. That sounds more like something that can be solved with Citrix or similar solutions.
