    Hello,

    I have a strange thing accessing my Vista Business.
    I can access shares on it and ping it from any machine on the LAN.
    But when I try to access the machine from a remote location via VPN (with
    XP) I get "The network path was not found." and I also can't ping the
    machine.

    Is there an option that I have to change for this to work?
    I fear that when more people at work start using Vista that they will run
    into this as well.

    Thank you.

    At a loss now....

    The machine (XP, LAN) that I could ping the Vista machine with now also stopped working its pings to it.
    Just checked with the only other Vista machine on the LAN present and that one however does ping it and accesses the shares.
