Database Connection Timeout

Have VPN user who receives DBMS error (login timeout) when trying to connect to SDE on SQL Server.  User can ping the server and can use sqlcmd with login timeout variable set to 60 (-l 60) to connect to the sql server through VPN (if timeout variable isn't set then it fails). 


I am wondering if there is a setting in ArcGIS database connections or if this is handled in the host SQL Server or if there is something else to investigate.  Also, permissions are fine since the user can successfully connect while in the office and not on VPN.
