A little about our setup and what I'm trying to do:
All machines in question running Windows 8.1 Pro
Remote machine users connect to our internal network with Cisco Systems VPN Client 5.0.07.0440 All machines on the internal network we can use RDC to remotely connect to however for whatever reason we can only remotely connect to the remote machines (who are VPN'd into the internal network) if their local network connection is set to trusted (private / home). If they are connected to a network thats set to a Public trust level we cannot use RDC to connect to them (standard error below); also cannot \0.0.0.0\c$ to those machines. It's my understanding that using the VPN should utilize the VPN's connection settings not have to abide by local network connection settings.
Any thoughts or assistance with this issue would be greatly appreciated.
