Hi,

Please can someone advise on the following. I can connect to my  (via VPN connection) Win 2003 server and from the workstation I can also ping the sever. When I try to map a drive i.e. \\192.16.16.10\users I receive an error of 'network drive cannot be found.

Please advise. Thanks

Check the accepted answer in above link

Also do this
\\192.16.16.10

it should ask for user and password
provide it and then there will be no problem

A couple of thought
-is network address actually 192.16.16.10 or a typo and should be 192.168.16.10  The former is not intended as a private IP range and there may be routing issues
-remote and local subnets should be different, i.e. other site should be 192.168.17.x or similar
-is there a software firewall enabled on the computer to which you are connecting
-is it a valid share? can you connect to it using \\192.168.16.10\users from the local network
-can you map the share using:
net  use  z:  \\192.168.16.10\users   password  /user:domain.abc\username
  (note: leave "user" it is not a variable)

Check your windows firewall. you may need to disable it for testing.
make sure you can ping the server. if you can check the name on the share and if it is correct then check permissions and security on the share.

hope this helps!

-I  cannot connect map share using:
net  use  z:  \\192.168.16.10\users  

My workstation is windows 2000. As mentioned above I can ping the server but cannot connect to shared folders not even through explorer.

Please advise. Thanks

Are the sites different subnets? If not you will receive results similar to what you are describing.
