This error generally happens when a laptop tries to connect to SQL Server when office network resources are not available.  The quick fix is to try logging on to SQL Server again while in the office or connected remotely by VPN.

An alternative would be to use a SQL Server login (username/password combo) instead of using domain credentials.  Every SQL Server installation has what is called the SA account. You may use that login to connect if you are not able to use your own username.
