If you can SSH as root (and sometimes systems are configured to allow it) you can use this method above via SSH. In fact, I just did. ssh root@host "mount devpts /dev/pts -t devpts" was exactly what the doctor ordered.

Just FYI: the mesh network IP assignments are not assigned based on the user's home office network or any thing like that. There's no way to know which office the user "lives" at based on their mesh IP. In fact, some users are exclusively on-the-road users and have no home office.

@GAThrawn: The laptop is connected via a mesh-style network like Hamachi or NeoRouter and always has a mesh-network-specific IP address. Routes are setup such that when they are off-network, the traffic destined to that network will flow via the mesh network. For this example, the Chicago office is 10.0.0.0/24, the LA office is 10.0.1.0/24, the NY office is 10.0.2.0/24, and the mesh network (all users on it) is 10.99.0.0/16. When the user is in the LA office, they are 10.0.1.55 and are in the LA site. But when out-of-office, they are on 10.99.11.22 and don't fit in any site.

They are a domain user. I was referring to their profile being local on the computer, not roaming or otherwise.
