VPN and Network Places

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by digitaldomains, Apr 28, 2004.

  1. I have a VPN connection that is working correctly. I can
    log in just fine, however, I cannot access any shared
    files through the VPN. The server does not show up
    through my network places and if I run \\servername\share
    it says the network can not be found. However, If I run
    \\ip address\share name a logon window appears but it will
    not take any user names or passwords, I have tried all of
    the users that exist and it just keeps opeining that logon
    box. What do I need to do to access a network folder
    through VPN?

  2. Is the remote client in a different IP-range from the sbs?

    No, I have a DHCP server set up to give the VPN clients
    the same range. When the VPN connects it is on the same
    range.

  4. That is fine, but is that VPN client already in a network maybe, and is that
    network in a different IP-range?
    Also, got WINS installed on the server?

    Yes wins is on the server and running. I have tested the
    VPN on several computers, the main one at my house
    running on comcast cable service. The server has a IP
    address through qwest.net

  6. Can you post the ipconfig/all when vpn-ed into the domain?

  8. Is that client connected to a router itself? If yes, those DNS numbers
    should point to the gateway.
    Do you really have your sbs-server in the 168-range?

    I am connecting to the server through vpn, the router has
    a different ip. That is the ipaddress that qwest gave me
    for my server.

  10. qwest doesn't decide how you should run your internal network. You better
    get that in a private IP-range. The 168 should only be in your router.

    Qwest gave us a block of 5 Ip address, one for the server
    and the website i will run on it, and 1 for the router.
    So i have to use those ip addresses? So I had to use
    those ip address's so they are in the same range as the
    IP address on the server? Dont I?

  12. No, you don't have to use those IP's. You only use them in your router, not
    on your network.

  13. What do you mean "the website I will run on it"? Are you seriously thinking
    about hosting a website on your server???

    Is there a solution on why the network places not show
    up? I have a similiar problem and can't understand why
    the server doesn't show up. Any suggestion.

  15. Post the ipconfig/all when you are vpn-ed into the server please.

    Is your server listed in the hosts file?
