Windows XP PRO mapped network drive and Netgear
Posted on 2006-04-27
ok, i know there are alot of questions and answers here about this but systems are different so here we go.
peer to peer system
server - win xp pro all available updates/service packs installed
no domain setup, using workgroup - no problems with system locally. Server ip always = 192.168.0.7
using laptop with windows xp pro utilizing netgear prosafe vpn client connecting to the network thru a netgear FVS318 with the latest firmware. ABSOLUTELY NO CONNECTION ISSUES, FUNCTIONS FINE, I can connect and then I use RealVNC software to use the server as if i was sitting at it.
the location where the network is that i connect to does have a static IP address.
what i want to do:
I want to map a network drive to the server
I want to be able to transfer files.
What do i need to do to get this working. I need the mapped drive so that i can use a program on the laptop.
transfer files, self explanatory.
Thanks for you help!!!
