    It's only come to my attention that on all our remote VPN PCs/laptops, when performing a search for files (using search companion) on network drives, no results are displayed. There are no problems with local drives.

    If the PC is put back on the LAN (ie no VPN) then file searches work fine.

    All our PCs/Laptops are running Windows XP and the connection type for the remote PCs are ADSL & Telstra NextG wireless not that it makes any difference.

    Has anyone ever experienced this before? Any help will be appreciated.
