How do I prevent being re-authenticated by Windows when using LDAP on an Anyconnect VPN connection?

I have a windows 32bit system and am connecting over Cisco AnyConnect VPN to my work domain.  I am using LDAP for authentication with my windows domain username/ password, which connects no problem.

I am trying to access a share on a subnet that I have made reachable over the vpn (I can ping this when connected), but I get prompted for my windows credentials, which it takes and I access the files, no problem.

How do I prevent being prompted for the credentials after I have already supplied them on initially establishing the VPN connection?

Is this a domain system?  Typically with shares your using the system cached credentials when accessing over the vpn and not the vpn credentials.  Unless the laptop has not been synced to the server in a while (meaning the pc has not had a password change).

I am trying to access my file server (I have the requisite permissions) over my VPN connection from home without having to re-enter my AD credentials, which I use to connect to the VPN.

I am connecting from my home PC (not part of my work domain), which I am able to establish a VPN connection with no problem.  The issue is if I want to navigate to a resource in my work environment (i.e. file server), which it asks for my AD username/ password.  

How do I get around being prompted for this?
Can the username/ password pair I issue when initially connecting to VPN be used?

I am looking for a way to have this automated so the user only logs onto VPN and can navigate to those server locations (i.e. file server, shared directory) without having to type in the username/ password credentials again.

add the username / password into your credential manager
