    I used to be able to access shared directories when I connected to our
    network over the internet. Something has changed recently, though, because I
    can't access our shared directories any more. We have a secure VPN
    connection through a Cisco 501 Firewall. I have recently activated our
    intranet and made it available over the VPN. I have also made the shares for
    local (internal users only) for security sake.

    We have a SBS 2003 and are using W2K SP4 workstations. I am probably the
    only one access the network over the web, so my home computer has the same

    How can I access the shared directories again? Any security settings?

  2. Is your IP subnet at home, the same as the IPsubnet of the LAN? If so,
    thats the issue

    Change your home subnet

    I have a cable modem and can't see what subnet it is using. However, I also
    have a wireless router and have DHCP activated. The subnet for the router is
    the same as the subnet used here at work. The IP range on the router may be
    different from the range accepted here at the office, though. Maybe that
    could be it.

    I also have the workstation at home using acquiring IP numbers dynamically.

    As an aside note, the intranet and OWA are accessible. With the intranet,
    however, I need to activate the VPN connection. I don't with the OWA. This
    seems odd. Can I change it so I can access mapped drives over our intranet
