Okay so I give up. I've been trying for a long time to get VPNing working with Macs and have yet to get it to work. All the PCs VPN just fine.
All of the Macs have the latest RDP. The user is able to VPN but then can't RDP to their office computers. It's as if it DNS doesn't apply to them or something along those lines.

I'm desperate. I'm sure someone has solved this problem. Is it an issue with the Mac OS version?

I'm getting the following error on my DC for one of the Mac users. in fact both the mac users are getting the same error:
"Active Directory Certificate Services denied request 85 because The permissions on the certificate template do not allow the current user to enroll for this type of certificate"

Can they RDP into the ip address of their computer?
If so i would just create an entry in their hosts file to solve this permanently.
(dont worry, you are not the only one dealing with this (BIG) Mac problem.

I think I've had them do that before but i'll double check. I don't have a problem with RDPing to an IP. whatever it takes to make it work.

I used this tutorial to get it working for me:

Connecting Remotely to a Windows 7 Desktop from Mac OS X
Computers running Windows XP Professional and certain versions of Windows Vista and Windows 7 (nearly every version except Home, Basic and Starter) can be controlled remotely via the Remote Desktop Connection protocol. This allows a remote user to log in to the Windows-based computer and control it as if he or she was sitting right in front of it. Windows-based machines with Remote Desktop Connection enabled can accept connections from other Windows computers as well as OS X computers running the Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac. In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to install the Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac and connect to a Windows computer which has enabled Remote Desktop Connections.
