Map drive over VPN for non-domain computer?

Say for a Windows 7 user who uses a VPN for company
but their computer isn't on the domain
How could you establish a drive mapping for them automatically on their computer, without using something like Citrix published folders...?
is there such a way, like a VPN logon script?
Or would you just be best off flashing a landing page after connecting to VPN with directions on how to map their drive manually?

I found it best for ordinary users to put a Batch File on the Desktop named Connect.bat with the logon scripts in it.  This makes it independent of the VPN if the user happens to come into the office. It will work the same way. They will easily learn how to use it.

If the computer is a desktop, you may be able to include the script in the VPN connect. You need to look at the particular VPN application they have to see how this would be done.

No need to do it manually.
