VPN doesn't allow file Access (Win XP Home to Win2K)
Posted on 2006-05-08
I'm connecting to a VPN with my Windows XP Home computer that is behind a DSL modem. The network I'm connecting to is also a DSL modem, Windows 2000 Computer. I can sign in but cannot see any of the computers and cannot share any files, even though I do have file sharing turned on on both sides.
I cannot ping any computers on the other network, including the Win2K machine that is configured as a VPN server. My internet connection (on the XP (client computer)) becomes unavailable after connecting to remote network, although I can still connect to the remote network with RealVNC.
Any place to start troubleshooting here?
