    We have a few users who can connect to our domain via VPN. The last time
    one of these folks was at a meeting and connected via VPN, we exchanged a
    few emails and then I happened to go to My Network Places and noticed I
    could see all the other domains that other folks at the same meeting were
    connected to. My question is obvious.. how do I prevent a meeting room full
    of outsiders from roaming our domain while one of our systems is connected
    via VPN? Probably just my paranoia, but please help calm the concern.

    Thanks in advance!

    Don't think you would be able to browse their domains - Just the way
    WINS registration is configured within your domain.

    I think if you tried to browse you would get an unavailable error
    message as the domain record that has been registered will be to an
    internal IP address in a network that you have no access to!

    If they are physically connecting to your network to use an internet
    connection then they will, most likely be able to browse around network
    neighborhood but permissions would prevent them from accessing anything.

    Any calmer??
