Accessing a work PC's directory from home using Cisco VPN Client
Posted on 2004-11-17
Perhaps the title is a bit misleading. I am the system administrator of a mid-sized company and wish to access my PC from home. I am able to gain full access to our network server using Cisco VPN Client software through our Pix firewall. I was trying to access the files on my PC (Windows XP SP2, built-in firewall off) through the VPN connection by typing \\mycomputername\C$ thinking that since I was connected to the domain via the VPN client and since I have full adminisitrative priviledges within the domain I should be able to contact the other PCs in the network as well. Why can I not? How would I go about doing so? Note that I only want access to the directory, I do not want to use a VNC (i.e. RealVNC, PCAnywhere, etc...) to accomplish this.
