Windows 7: How to join a domain via VPN

At the moment i believe the user is connecting via Remote Desktop.
It is my understanding that by doing it this way a local machine is required.

OK...

The user is connecting to a machine via RDP which would effect the appearance of the desktop however it would also lock that machine out so not sure what is going on with yours sorry, hard to tell without seeing it

However, the user shouldn't need to connect to a desktop in the office if they are on the VPN/Domain.

They should be able to get to shares via UNC, try getting the user to do the following...

(You will need to provide the details where you see these marks <>)

Windows Vista or 7:
Click start >> in the search field type:
\\<server>\<Share>\

Windows XP:
Click start >> Click run >> type:
\\<server>\<Share>\
Now Click OK

This should then open that share providing they have permissions to it, if it asks for a username/password, they would need to enter their credentials.

Obviously, if they are up and running and you are happy with it then feel free to carry on
