Cannot access shares/map network drives over VPN: using Linksys WRV54G router and Linksys quick VPN client
Posted on 2006-06-14
Same setup as Q_21773993.html, small network, no server, no domain. Just a handful of workstations in a workgroup (all XP pro). VPN is established (finally) and pinging computer at the office with the share but non-routability of netBIOS is flubbing up a simple networking operation.
Trying to map a network drive and I thought that "\\IP.address.goes.here\share" would do it, but still not getting to the share. What might I be doing wrong, ie: permissioning on the directory itself or limitations of the linksys VPN client.
Not sure of the type of VPN that is being established with the linksys quickvpn client either. Does the type of VPN matter?
