VPN / Network login
Posted on 2004-04-08
I'm trying to setup my computer so I can access my work computer from home via VPN. But I'm having a problem when it comes to accessing my work computer. I have no problems browsing the network or accessing my mail via the mail server on the network. But when I try to access my computer, I get the following error:
"\\computername is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this
network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have
access permissions. The network path was not found."
When I access this computer via a company dial-up connection, I get prompted for a Username and Password. Then after entering that, I get in it with no problem. On the VPN, I just get this error when I try to access my computer. I was wondering since I'm accessing this via a network connection, if there could possibly be a setting in the Group Policy Settings or something that I need to change, so I'll get prompted for a login.
Also, when I access this via dial-up, I have to put my domain in front of my username when I log in to my computer: Domain\Username
By the way, the computer I'm using is running Windows XP Pro and the one I'm trying to access is Windows 2000.
