that's the part that i don't like...nor trust
and u're ryt... it is just trusting the local authentication..user logs in domain user account and then connects to VPN...
Mapping Network Drives over VPN

but another worrying thing is... when the net use failed the user could 'ping servername' and it was successful... also he tried '\\server ip addr' in run and he could see all the shared folders... if it was authentication problem then it shudnt have let that happen ryt?
now i dont even know what to trust.

...the ability to ping the server by name could be a result of the local dns cache...or the fact that on the vpn he's using your dns server that knows the server's name
and....even from a computer that's not joined to the domain...you should be able to do a \\serverip\shared folder and make a connection.....of course...it will usually ask for authentication...but...maybe at that point....it's accepting the authentication
did they try doing the \\servername in run....to each server that's containing the mapped drives......THEN run the netuse batch file?

i found this when i was researching.... do u think that's a possible problem... this server we're trying to map drives to is win2k3 sp1

by mirrored drives...are you talking about offline synchronization?....if so...that...SHOULDN"T need to be done from the vpn... as it would...in theory synch locally when they are in the office...so they should be able to work on the stuff from anywhere...then it would synch when they get back
