Mapping a network drive outside LAN problem
Posted on 2003-11-04
I am trying to map a network drive outside my LAN without any luck. The machine I need to map is a Dell Powervault NAS server in a datacentre somewhere.
net use \\xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx\map$ /user: administrator
I tried mapping it from my office: no problem at all. I try to map it from my home and I keep getting the error: System error 53 has occurred. The network path was not found.
Now, I CAN ping the machine. I can login to it with Terminal Services. And, I try the same from my office (which isn't in the ip range either or something) and it works fine. I'm really a novice when it comes to these things apparently. Is there any setting I missed. Does the target server have an entry of my office's router ip address and not the one I have at home (and thus restricts access or something). Both client machines have winXP. Disabling firewalls etc didn't help. What am I doing wrong?
