    Hey all, I have a client who has a Microsoft Windows 2003 Server and I installed a Linksys WRV54g VPN router for remote access. QuickVPN works great from remote locations connecting. I can ping all the office servers and pc's and tools such as VNC allow connections to the office workstations. So it seems the router and quickvpn are working fine with each other.
    However I have one user who has a laptop that connects into the windows domain when in the office and after trying to re-connect to the domain shares remotely I hit a wall. Is it possible to use the Linksys quickvpn and have a user login to a windows domain remotely?
    If the quickvpn software installed as a service this problem would probably be resolved since as it stands now the quickvpn client starts after the user logs into the workstation (locally)

    I'm sure I am not the first person with this question and hopefully someone else has found a solution.

    Thanks for any info.

    What's normally been seen if is the user isn't logging in as an admin, they can't connect with quickvpn. But, to answer your question, yes, you can log in with quickvpn as a client and connect to a windows domain.

    Someone in my recent travels had mentioned to me there was some software that would allow you to change permissions inside of quickvpn to allow accesss; if I find it, I'll let you know...
