I have a very simple VPN that I setup for a friend that is having issues with mapped drives.

Server 2012 is running the VPN
Windows 8 is connecting

The connection is created however the mapped drives SOMETIMES do not work. If I browse manually to the server while connected to the VPN the shares that are supposed to be there aren't. Simple workgroup environment.


Scenario1: User connects to VPN and everything works fine. Mapped drives open and there are available files/folders.
Scenario 2: User connects to VPN and everything seems fine however mapped drives do not open and user receives the error "an error occurred while reconnecting w: to \\servername\folderMicrosoft Windows Network: The network path was not found.
This connection has not been restored."
