At work we have a VPN and we have found, or have come to wrong conclusion, that users working from home with Windows Home Basic or Home Premium can not map a network drive at cooperate headquarters. Apparently this is due to domain issues and these users would need Windows 7 “Professional” or “Ultimate” Edition as a requirement to access these Network Drives. Currently users with Windows 7 “Professional” or “Ultimate" have no problem mapping these network drives
My question is simple: Is this a known limitation and if yes is there any solution that can be done on the users computer (applying or buying a patch) that will solve this problem without the user having to upgrade their entire O/S?
What is the issue specifically?
