    Sorry if this has been asked before, but I've had a good
    search and can't fin anything

    Basically, we have just installed a new serevr with SBS
    2003 on it. I am trying to set some existing laptops and
    my home PC up to connect via PN. I have been successfule
    in all cases actually connecting the VPN - i.e. it asks
    for user name and password and then I get logged on.

    However, once I am logged on, I cannot "find" the server
    when I search, nor can outlook connect to exchange
    server. So basically I can't do anything with the

    I know it is working OK, as I have had our IT advisers
    connected and controlling the server with remote desktop.

    I am assuming the problem with laptops, is something to
    do with the fact that they have been configured
    previously to connect to the old server with a different
    name (and IP Address) and are somehow confused!

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Many thanks.

  2. Hi Steve,

    Make sure the local lan on the VPN clients is in a different IP range if
    they are using a router or have another lan connection.

    It appears they are in the same range - i think! The IP address for the
    router is with a gateway of, where the ones for the
    server are between and, so I suppose that constitutes
    the same range?

    So I need to change the range on the router right?

    Thank you.
