Prompt for username and password when using VPN

Q1: I just created a new W2K3 server with VPN access using basic RRAS (no
firewall yet).

From my existing workstation (which is a member of a different domain), I am able to connect to the new server using a VPN connection. If I try to browse the new domain, I can see the new server.  If I try to expand the server I get prompted to enter a user id and password for that domain.  The prompt fills in a legitimate <domain>\<user> format for me, but if I give the password, and hit OK, it just keeps re-prompting. I know 'everyone' has the right to 'Access this computer from the Network' and the share itself allows everyone access.

if I try to map the drive, I get the same sort of error. Does anyone have any idea of the problem or where to start looking at least?

A1: sounds like cached credentials issue. try this command net use
\\vpnservername\sharename /u:username. Does this work? If not, what's
the system error code? or check this link,

However, when the same user access the VPN, he uses cached credentials to access... The VPN user may lose the cached credentials and may need to use

A2: I agree with Bob. The credentials you will be using will be your local
login credentials, not the username/password you used to make the VPN
connection.

Making a RAS/VPN connection just sets up an IP connection. It is not a
login operation. The username/password you enter to make the connection are used to authorise the connection only.
