After connecting via VPN connect to remote computer without RDP

Once I connect to a SonicWall VPN on a remote site, usually I will run RDP and login to another computer.
I want to simply connect remotely to the network after my VPN is connected, so that I can map out shares to specific computers etc... on the originating computer.
Is there a way to remotely connect similar to RDP but without actually having to view the computer on the other side?

If I understand you want remote computers to mount your local shares thru vpn automatically ?

That would be optimum.

Attachment of local resources such as drives, has to be allowed.
Open RDP, expand options, go to local and add the resource. Once you connect, the setting should remain for future connections.
If there are no firewall rules on SonicWall and  your machine inhibiting SMB traffic for the VPN and office IPs, you should be able to map local shares on remote machines. But it is still a manual process then, at least once per remote (if using persistent drive mappings).
You could try to run a remote shell to remote machine to map your local disk.
Thanks Louis.
Can I see a remote shell sample which would first remote into the computer and then map drives?
