Dial up Networking and VPN

I use an ISP to connect to the Internet and then connect to my network with Cisco VPN.  When I try to map to network shares I get this error "The mapped network drive could not be created because the following error has occurred: An extended error has occurred."

It seems the ISP username and password are being used for Windows authentication.  If I have user with same dial up username and password, I don't get this problem.

Is there some stting I can change in XP?

When you map the network drive, how do you do it?

Do you type:

\\computernameyouwanttomapto\share

If you do, I think you need to type the fully qualified domain name

\\computername.computer.network.com\share

You computer's domain (which you get from the ISP) is getting tacked onto the end of the computer name the other way.

I have the domain name in the dns suffix.  Why would I need to put the fully qualified name in?  This does not happen with Windows 2000 or Nt 4.0?

If I am correct in my understanding of the situation, then your ISP is giving you the values to put into that field.   Let's say they either told you what to enter or DHCP-it and the values are:

hostname: computer
domain: myisp.internet.com

When you VPN into your network, you are going to:

hostname: myworkcomputer
domain: mywork.internet.com


When you try to map to \\myworkcomputer, I believe that your computer is making it look like this:

\\myworkcomputer.myisp.internet.com


You say this isn't the way it works for Windows 2000 or NT 4.0.  Are you trying it with those operating systems ALSO through your isp?  If they work in you corporate environment it is because they have the right domian on them.

Does it work once fully qualified by the way?

ICS was not enabled when you installed the Cisco VPN Software, was it?  Also which Cisco VPN client are you running?

My computer is not having a problem finding the computer with the share.  If I "connect as" and put my domain user name and password, I have no problem.

Any typos in that name Cisco Altiga 3.51 ?? I can't find it at Cisco's Web site.

Three documented known issues:

Disabling ICS when Preparing to Install or Upgrade to Cisco VPN Client 3.5.X on Microsoft Windows XP  
Using RADIUS Servers with VPN 3000 Products
VPN Clients with Microsoft Routing Problems  
What Does the -Unable to Notify Service of Security Parameters- Error Message Mean?

Cisco, they indicate you have to make sure ICS is not running on XP when you install the client.  Nothing anywhere on theis Altiga 3.61.

Fully qualified does work.  I added mydomain.com to dns search order to see if this woul help.

When connected I have no trouble pinging the server.

If I "connect as" the drop down has differnt info than my domain\username.

Please refund. None of the comments were applicable.

I did solve my own problem.  The solution was not any of the above.

derosa.. I am going to request a refund for you.

Why are you using Local Security policies?  That option under Network Access should also be available under Groupo Policies.  Thx.  MSGeek.
