When you make a VPN connection, you simply set up an IP connection. It is
not like a login on a LAN. You do not log in to the domain. Even if you
specify a domain username, this is used only to verify that you have
permission to connect by VPN. If you try to map a share, the credentials
used will be the ones you used to log in to your local machine, not the ones
you used to make the VPN connection.
The best idea is to use the "net use" command to map the share. This allows
you to enter a username and password for the share.
