Hi all, trust you are well.

Scenario: SBS2003 Premium Server with 6 XP Client PCs. Need to connect to two different servers via VPN. Create connection using wizard on XP client to VPN1, click connect, put in username and password, connects. Type \\VPN1_ServerName and all the shares come up.

No Poblem

So, do the same thing with VPN2. Create Connection on XP Client, click connect, put in username and password, connects. Type \\VPN2_ServerName and "Network Path not found" comes up.

So, VPN2 not working....Plug SparePC into ADSL Router (instead of LAN) and Create connection using wizard on XP client to VPN2, click connect, put in username and password, connects. Type in \\VPN2_ServerName and the Shares do come up.

What could the problem be?

Thanks
Sean

Oh, and if type in the \\VPN2_ServerName.domainname.com\sharename it does come up with a login box - but will not accept any variation of the domain/username. Login box just keeps coming back.....

have you tried \\serverip to bring up the shares?

Also, has that machine ever been on the VPN2 domain?

Add an entry to your hosts file  (windows\system32\drivers\etc) to reference the servername with the IP.

it sounds like a typical DNS issue through VPN.  I see them a lot.  Try fixing the host file first, that should take care of it.
