Compromising Security

By jpyper ·
When my client logs onto his domain profile from home via Cisco vpn, he has access to his emails and desktop but when he tries to open any of the drives on the server, he gets an error message saying that he is trying to compromise security, thus leaving him without access to these drives. OS: Win XP Pro + SP2, Windows Server 2000. When he is on the network at the office he logs into his profile with no problems. I am relatively new to the IT profession and if i am leaving out any needed details to raise an answer I appologize. Any suggestions?

What security groups have rights on those folders?

That would be the first place I began checking assuming htat he is successfully logging into the network.

Thanks for your interest,
His vpn establishes a connection to the network, pinged the server, it replied, his profile has been assigned to all the correct security groups. Technically he should be able to have access to these files? Yet the error message suggests that he might be compromising security. Could it be his DNS settings?

In the light of some of the articles I have read on this site, I would just like to make sure that anyone who replies to my question, you included Jerry, knows that it is highly appriated! I am young at this, it was a mid-life-career change I attempted, and I am enjoying everyday so far! I am learning tons of things everyday. So...THANX AGAIN!

I would start to check the settings of the cisco device , and cisco client software (if any)
