No access to network shares over VPN from Vista

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Networking' started by msnews.microsoft.com, Jan 1, 2007.

  1. Dear experts


    I have a problem accessing any network shares from "outside the LAN" "Windos
    Server 2003"-systems with a "Windows Vista"-system:

    Detailed description:
    I have a LAN behind a ADSL-Router and in this LAN there are
    Vista-Vista-WS1: A Windows Vista Business Edition x64 (English)(current
    patch level)
    Vista-WS2: A Windows Vista Business Edition x86 (German)(current
    patch level)
    Vista-WS3: A Windows Vista Business Edition x86 (English)(current
    patch level) in a Virtual Machine
    XP-WS: A Windows XP Professional Edition x86
    (English)(current patch level)
    Srv-LAN: A Windows Server 2003 R2 x86 (English)(current patch
    level) in a Virtual Machine
    The Windows Server is configured as domain
    controller, VPN-Server, DNS-Server, File-Server

    I have a workplace environment in another site which can be accessed over
    VPN:
    DC-WAN: A Windows Server 2003 R2 x86 (English)(current patch
    level) as Domain Controller
    Exchange-WAN: A Windows Server 2003 R2 x86 (English)(current patch level) as
    Exchange Server
    FS-WAN: A Windows Server 2003 R2 x86 (English)(current patch
    level) as File Server
    VPN-WAN: A Windows Server 2003 R2 x86 (English)(current patch
    level) as VPN-Server
    Web-WAN: A Windows Server 2003 R2 x86 (English)(current patch
    level) as Web-Server

    Vista-WS1, Vista-WS2, Vista-WS3, XP-WS
    can successfully connect over VPN with Srv-LAN and can
    successfully map any share from Srv-LAN
    Vista-WS1, Vista-WS2, Vista-WS3, XP-WS can successfully connect over VPN
    with VPN-WAN
    Vista-WS1, Vista-WS2, Vista-WS3, XP-WS can successfully connect with the
    Exchange Server Exchange-WAN
    Vista-WS1, Vista-WS2, Vista-WS3, XP-WS can successfully connect with the Web
    Server Web-WAN
    Vista-WS1, Vista-WS2, Vista-WS3 always fail to map any share from FS-WAN
    XP-WS can successfully map any share from FS-WAN


    Error messages:
    c:\> net use x: \\<fqdn>\share
    "System error 1214 has occured. The format of the specified network name is
    invalid."
    c:\> net use x: \\<NetBIOS-Name>\share
    "System error 53 has occured. The network path was not found."
    c:\> net use x: \\<IP-address>\share
    "System error 53 has occured. The network path was not found."


    Any ideas?
    Thanks for your support in advance!

    Dear regards and a happy new year... :)

  3. No ideas, I'm afraid, but you are not alone. Many others experience the
    same. Search this NG for my enquiry into the same problem.

  4. Hello Stuart

    Thanks for your suggestion but k899148 doesn´t solve the problem:
    I´m working with static packet filters (netsh ipsec static) and I´ve opened
    all ports on the filesserver FS-WAN for the VPN-Server VPN-WAN.
    The local Server Srv-LAN has the same packet filter configuration ref. VPN.
    All Vista Workstations located as domain members in my workplace environment
    don´t have any problems and they find exactly the same opened ports!

    I´m looking forward to find a solution...
    Best regards

    No way, it doesn´t work!

  6. Hello Admins

    For security reasons I had disabled NetBIOS in the TCP/IP settings on all
    servers.
    Windows Vista can´t handle this!
    With NetBIOS enabled, everthing works properly!
    Very special thanks to Mr. Aslaner from Microsoft for supporting me with
    this problem!
    Best regards

  7. Hello Admins

    Windows Vista requires an open port 139 and NetBIOS enabled on the server to map a server share through a VPN connection - very poor for security!!!
    But Microsoft is goin´ to fix that problem, they confirmed!
    Best regards

    Robert,

    I am in the same boat as you are with this problem.

    However, I enabled NetBIOS on the server (Windows Server 2003 R2 x64
    Enterprise Edition).

    I also opened TCP Port 139 and UDP Port 139 on the server but I still
    receive the following error:

    Windows Cannot Access \\10.x.y.z\d$

    Error code: 0x80070035
    The network path was not found.

    ehrm, the port 139 has to be open on the public ip of the remote server,
    eventho one is in a different private network when using vpn? did i get
    that right? i sure hope NOT!

  10. Out of curiosity, what is the status of ports 137 and 138?
