I have couple of remote users with VPN clients. From time to time when they are not connected to main site they report that it takes long time to open documents on local machines. Their laptops are attached to domain; I enable logon cache in for 50 logons, via policy. Am I missing anything else? It seems like their laptops trying to find dc that?s why it takes long times. Any suggestions or help. Thaks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Use SysInternal’s tools TCPView and FileMon to see what connections are being attempted during this problem, and what files and paths are being attempted also during this problem.

They can be found on Microsoft’s TechNet site.

You can have the users just run the tools, and save the results and email them to you for analysis.

    You may also want to look at their MTU size. If a VPN packet gets fragmented it can cause some pretty ugly connection problems. You can have the users test by running the "ping -l BufferSize" I believe windows defaults somewhere around 1500, but I've seen situations you need to drop to around 1400 or less to avoid problems when connecting through some ISPs/networks.
