I have a customer that we replaced the server with one no running Server 2012.   Since then some of the users can get into vpn and they can use Remote Desktop Connection to get to the server files.  The issue is that they cannot use the applications off their laptop desktop.   When they use Remote Desktop they are looking at the server and the server does not have all the applications on it.   Shouldn't they be able to use VPN and as soon as they get through the VPN access the files needed on the server via their desktop since they have mapped drives just as they use in the office (these mapped drives are on their laptops)?
