I want to access my company's internal network from my home (on a PC running WIndows 7). I received configuration details to use with OpenVPN and connected successfully (according to OpenVPN log). I tried to copy-paste in explorer a link to a directory on the company network that I want to access. Then a window popped-up asking me my logging details and password. However under the "domain" info is the name of my home PC. I guess I have to change it to a domain name on my company's network ? How can I do it ?

When you type in your username, type username@domain or domain\username. Take your pick. If you want no domain, use \\username.
