Slackware 9.1 access via Dlink DI-804HV pptp vpn connection
Posted on 2005-04-12
I have a small business running a P2P network, utilizing a Slackware 9.1 box as a file server / SAMBA enabled.
Recently the need arose to connect to the SAMBA shares fm remote. I am not very Linux savvy, but can do basics...so I installed the D-Link DI-804HV router w/VPN support and enabled the virtual PPTP server.
Remote connections are made to the LAN, no problem. Other Win machines' shares are visible, BUT the SAMBA shares are not. I can ping the server, telnet the server, and use Webmin all over the VPN connection but cannot access the SAMBA shares.
I would very much appreciate some advice to resolve as is - not to install pptp on Linux or other solution.
