    Hi,

    I have one user who is a member of a windows server 2008 domain, which pc is
    moved to his house.
    What is the way that this user still can logon to the domain in a secure
    way, without placing a dc on that site?
    What is the advised method for this?
    Is there an easy way this user can connect over the internet by vpn
    Is this easy to install on the dc (though maybe not preferred on the dc, but
    I have nothing else at this moment) ?

    regards,
    Marcel

    Absolutely your user can connect over a VPN. In fact, that would be the best
    way to go. I haven't set this up on Server 2008 (the last client we set
    this up for has only Server 2003), but this Google search has quite a few
    links that look promising. It is quite easy to do, from both the server and
    workstation ends.

  3. Hi
    There are 3rd party applications that can help in the managing of few
    Network Logon.
