Remote User Password Expiration

I am looking for a good way to handle expiring passwords for remote users.  I have several users that connect using VPN and they do not receive warnings when their password is about to expire.  Consequently, they never change their password and their password expires locking them out of their account.

Is there a way to warn users not connecting interactively that their password is going to expire?

What type of device are they using to connect via the VPN? Have you tried doing some research as to this device to see if it supports alerting the users when their password is going to expire?

What do the users do when they connect to the VPN? Do they login to any servers via Terminal Services because that should alert them that their password is about to expire and ask them to change it. You could also configure a Group Policy and assign these VPN users to it so that their password would never expire. Not sure if that is an option given your company's policy.
