VPN newby question
Posted on 2006-06-09
My company just made a VPN client available to me to connect to our network. They said once installed and configured I should be able to access anything just like I'm on the network.
But once I'm connected, I can't seem to access any shares. I've tried different ways to address including \\<computer name>\<share name>, \\<computer name>.<domain name>.local\<share name>. I've also opened up My Computer and expanded the Entire Network and then the Microsoft Windows Network and the only thing I see is my home network pc's.
ipconfig shows I have a 192.168.100.1 address. I'm not that familiar with IP, but I know that all the computers on the LAN at work are in the range 192.168.1.xx. Would I be on a different subnet or something?
First what is the proper way to address resources on the network once connected. And second, does anyone know if I should be able to see other pc's in network neighborhood, and if so, why mine won't let me see anything.
