I can connect via VPN to my Server but then Remote Desktop Connection says that the  computer does not belong to the specified network. If I am on the LAN, I can connect ok.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in Advance

Hey!

Haven't used VPN for a while now, after you connect with VPN, try to use the IP address of the machine instead of the computer name when you're connecting with remote desktop.
 
This used to be a "known" issue between WinVista/7 and older servers (2003) (DNS problem).

Let me know, how it went.

Best regards, Jernej
