    i have windows 2000SP3 on my laptop
    server is running windows 2000 SP2.
    (i'm using an analogue line to dial in.)

    when i have no off line folders syncr. , I have no problem dialing in into the companies network. logon script runs fine, i have all my drive mappings and i can see all network printers.
    -> but when i'm off line, i have no word/excel files as they are stored on the companies network.

    so i did a right click on my home drive and selected 'off line syncronisation'.
    Now every time i turn on/off my computer, my changed files are beeing synchronised.
    --> This is what i want.

    BUT !!!
    if i'm logged on off-line and i want to make a connection, my login script doesn't run, and i can't ping any network server (nor on name nor on ip-address), and i can't see data on the network that is not synchronised.

    if i shutdown my computer and restart and i select 'use dial up connection' the moment i type my username and password (domain is already filled in) i do get my loginscript and i can see the network.
    --> allways rebooting is very frustrating. so i contacted some external IT companies who have send there 'BEST' system engineers, and all they can say is : its a windows problem, and there is no solution to it.

    has anyone had the same problem or knows a solution to it ?
