Remote Client unable to map Network Shares through Gateway to Gateway Tunnel to Windows 2003 SBS
Posted on 2004-10-10
I am trying to set up a VPN between a main office and a remote office. Both offices want to share network drives at each location. Both have RV082 routers and there is a windows 2003 SBS server at either end. Each server has two NIC's, one used for the local network and the second for the ISP Internet Connection (connected directly to the RV082). I have successfully created a hardware VPN tunnel between both routers and either side of the tunnel can see the other sides server (i.e. the IP address of the NIC connected to the router). Now, here's my problem. I am unable to map any of the shared drives on either server through the VPN tunnel. I know it's because each router is not able to see the local network IP address of the server attached., etc. I need some help and advice on how to get access to the shares, etc from the ISP router side. Do I need to set create some IP Routes or do I need to configure Windows 2003 to allow access from the WAN. This is my first time setting up a VPN connection, so I am new to this.
