    I am using SBS 2k3 and software VPN.

    since few weeks I have got a problem with access to user folder. (as Admin
    as well) when I am connected remotely via VPN.

    I receive the alert "Access denied ...................... ask administrator
    ect"

    Every think works fine via RSS and in LAN of course is also fine.


    Any idea?

    Regards,

    Tom

  2. Sounds like a permissions issue. Make sure the user you are connecting as
    has the proper permissions and that there aren't some 'deny' permissions set
    that would kick on on remote workstations.

  3. Hello Tom,

    Thank you for posting here.

    According to your description, I understand that you unable to access the
    shared folder on SBS when you access thru VPN. If I have misunderstood the
    problem, please don't hesitate to let me know.

    Based on my research, I suggest we try the following steps to see if we can
    resolve this issue:

    1. What VPN software do you use? As I know, the improperly VPN connection
    will cause this issue. Please check the VPN settings to ensure it allow all
    traffic between remote client and SBS. Can you access other shared folders
    on SBS from the VPN client?

    2. Ensure the remote VPN client join and logon SBS domain before try to
    access the shared folder. Do you use site-to-site VPN? If not, please
    ensure you dial VPN before logon client.

    If we cannot resolve the issue after we perform the above steps, please
    help me collect some information for further investigation:

    1. What's OS of the remote client?

    2. Please capture screenshots on the error messages and send the pictures
    to me at

    3. Gather MPS network report on SBS:

    a. Download MPSrepot_network from
    http://download.microsoft.com/download/b/b/1/bb139fcb-4aac-4fe5-a579-30b0bd9
    15706/MPSRPT_NETWORK.EXE

    b. Run MPSRPT_NETWORK.exe.

    c. The tool will automatically collect the information. This procedure will
    take 10~15 minutes.

    d. Open Windows Explorer, navigate to the folder:
    %SystemRoot%\MPSReports\Network\Reports\Cab\

    e. Send the .cab file directly to me at

    I hope these steps will give you some help.

    Thanks and have a nice day!

    Best regards,

    Terence Liu(MSFT)
