Can't Map Network Drive using Windows XP
Posted on 2006-10-30
I am trying to map this network drive and it just wont work for some really odd reason. I thought I knew how to do this. I am connecting to a network over a VPN.
Once connected, I can ping the local machines in the domain, like ping 192.168.1.105 for example, but I can't map this as a network drive and I used to be able to. When I go to the office, we still need to use a VPN connection and I can map the drive fine at the office, but from home, using the same VPN client, I VPN in all is good, I can remote desktop into these boxes just fine from home, but when I try to map the network drive in Windows Explorer or even from the "Run | cmd | " it says
Actual Error message:
The drive could not bemapped because no network was found.
We have a share here and again, it works fine from the office, but at home it does not.
