We have multiple users who work remotely from home using Windows 7 pcs and a Cisco AnyConnect VPN to connect to our work network.  We have multiple applications that rely on LDAP authentication for auto-login purposes.  Is there a way to configure these workstations to remotely log onto our work domain using their Active Directory credentials?
Thanks in advance!

If you don't already have a VPN solution in place, you can deploy a Remote Access server (preferrably using Server 2012, since that has a better implementation of Remote Access) and have them connect to the VPN prior to login. If you have a VPN in place, you'll need to make sure the VPN client you use allows users to connect prior to login if you want the remote computers to contact a DC at login.
