So here goes
I have the PPTP working at the shop and its stable and connected via winxp built in vpn client.
The RDP is working perfectly also

So I’m at my in-laws place and connected to the shop with the vpn and rdp to my computer.

Here’s where it get weird.

I can “copy” files from the remote PC and “paste” them on my notebook without problem. – So file sharing seems to be working, kinda (I guess)

So then I try to connect to a shared folder on the C drive - \\10.76.25.100\C:\TEMP  = the specified path doesn’t exist

So then I try \\10.76.25.100\temp - to see what it does – I get a login screen asking for using name and PW – when I enter the name and PW – error message “there are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request”  - click okay is the only option. – not sure what that means

1. Reason is that Remote desktop allow you to copy-paste file direct from the remote machine onto your computer(notebook) ( do this by setting in remote desktop connection : options-> local resources -> Disk drive).

This has nothing to do with sharing folder& printer, and you can copy-paste in remote desktop even IF the share feature is NOT enabled.

2."\\10.76.25.100\C:\TEMP" I suggest this is the wrong syntax of accessing share folder. If you shared the C:\temp on, then other network user will access it by \\yourcomputername\temp. So in this case, if you share the folder Temp on C:, here the correct path : \\10.76.25.100\temp.

TIPS: you can access the whole disk C of remote computer by typing \\10.76.25.100\C$ ( this shared is by default) , provided you dont use SIMPLE FILE SHARING ( Control Panel->folder Options->View->unselect Use simple file sharing) and you know the administrator password of the accessed computer


3.About the sharing problems,some walk around : turn off firewall, enable guest account (simple file sharing), v.v...
