Hey Experts!  I have a riddle for you that I'm haven't been able to figure out.  

I have a Windows 2008 R2 server that has LANGuard installed which I use for software deployment and Windows/Microsoft patch management.  When I access the server at the office via RDP and deploy updates through LANGuard, I have no problems.  However, when I am at home, make a VPN connection to that server and begin deploying updates via LANGuard, the server restarts after several minutes.

The VPN software is from Avaya and my laptop I use at home and desktop I use at work are the same OS.  The updates aren't related to the server as that was my first guess as to why the server restarted.  The updates are Windows software updates for a different OU group.

I would greatly appreciate any help you can provide on this.  I can provide log files or anything else if that would help.  Thanks.
