I have a user who has a laptop that is joined to the companies internal windows server 2012 r2 domain.

He has network drives mapped via a login script. These work fine internally but when connected via VPN (using the Draytek Smart VPN client) the drives do not work. I know that this is casued by the DNS servers being unable to resolve to the fileserver name on the company network.

The user is currently using the cached domain account to log into the laptop whilst off the company network.

We are curently using the Draytek router as a VPN server.

Can someone tell me the best way to make the user experience when connected via VPN as smooth as possible for the end user.
