Windows VPN file sharing


I have set up VPN on windows to let me connect to my home computer. It connects ok and my home computer shows up in My Network Places but when I click it it tells me access is denied. What am I doing wrong I have logged in to VPN as Administrator.

Hi clearz,

We'll need a little more info to help with this I'm afraid.

What OS are you running on your home PC and the PC you're connecting from?
How did you set up the VPN?
Can you ping your home PC?
Are there any firewalls involved?

The answers to the above questions will help to narrow down the possibilities.
Erm - thanks for accepting my answer, but I'm not entirely sure what fixed it!
