Virtual Private Network (VPN)

My computer (win98) is dialing into a firewall protected Win NT 4 server which has a DSL connection.  I'm able to access the server using a dial-up connection and then a VPN.  The password and log on to network all works. But when I click neighboring networks, I'm unable to view any of the network drives.  Please let me know if you need more details

Click Start, Settings, Control Panel

Double click the network icon

In the upper window, click Client for Microsoft Networks once to highlight

Now click Properties

Setup the logon validation by inserting the NT domain name and then check the box to logon and restore network connections.

MC, when you start your VPN connection,
it should prompt you to log on to your Windows NT network, and then log in normally to be validated by that server to a share created for you. There must be a share created for you on the server, and the user name and password for that share must be the same one use for VPN.

What do you mean create a share? The login I use is the same as the one used for login to the network when I am on site.  Now, do you mean I have to create special setting in the user management of NT instead of just having it set as a "domain user"  or do I have to create this share somewhere else?

You need to have remote access running for the same user, in this case, you, and the share must be visable via RAS.

Sorry, but I didn't point out that I am running RAS and it does show the user as dialed in and connecting with the RAS.

Okay, we'll do this your way.

Here are two articles to work through. The first, after you get through the initial comments, will walk you through what you should be seeing.

Have you set the Win98 box to attempt to logon onto the domain and run the logon script and open the shares?

How do I set that up.  I'm assuming it's already been done because after I dial in , I do have a VPN dial-up which should be connecting to the server.  But as far as the script is concerned and opening the shares, can you please clarify.  Thanks.

Thanks for you help, I'm pretty sure that should do it.  I will verify this afternoon after I'm able to restart my computer.  I will however, give you the points right away.  Thanks for the quick effort.

MC, I did receive the points, but they weren't at issue. Having you understand what you're doing and having it work correctly is more important. Let me know after you've had an opportunity to test it.
