  • cannot open folders when remotely connected

    Hello,
    I have 2 users with new identical laptops (XP Pro sp3)

    They have a problem with accessing folders on 2003 when connected by VPN to the LAN.

    They have shortcuts to shared folders on their desktops.
    When click on shortcut login box appears. When typing user and password.
    They getting error similar to: The user you entered is already logged in.

    I say similar because they didn't take print screen of exact message. But the sense is right.
    Shortcuts refers to \\server_ip\share.
    As login they tried:
    domain_name\user_name
    server_name\user_name
    or just user_name

    The result is the same.
    What could be done?

    Thanks,
    Michael.

    ok i've never heard of "the user is already logged in" as a file sharing error.

    Could you possibly get us a screen dump ?

        here we go...
        did you see this ever?
        At home they connect with domain credentials...

        Temporarily, I suggested them to login as local administrator and when on vpn type domain credentials. Sure, it works.

        May be it's concurrent connection count...
        But message is weird.
        Never saw...
