    hi,

    I have a laptop which is part of a domain. if I boot the PC at home
    with only an Internet access, then open a VPN to my domain (not a MS
    VPN, just an IPSec tunnel), the laptop has IP connectivity (ping,
    etc.) to the domain controller but continue to think it is booted
    outside remotely (eg with no access to domain controller/resource)

    is there a way to force it to recheck if it has connectivity to the
    domain/domain controller to gain access to domain resource, change
    password, etc.

    TIA, Pierre.

    laptop: WinXP Pro SP2
    domain controller : Win2K3 R2

    No guarantees, but try this:
    From a command prompt, enter the command:

    browstat getpdc 1 domain
    or
    browstat status

    Where the "1" represents your connection number from the command:
    browstat dn

    and "domain" is replaced with your domain.

    If you don't have the browstat command on your system, you can get
    it here:
