VPN connects, can see server shares, but cannot access files: access denied
Posted on 2006-11-21
It was working, then stopped.
I have a remote VPN connection set up from my WinXP Pro PC to a Windows Server 2003 network with AD. 2 weeks ago it stopped working. I can connect, I can see the shares, but when I try to open or map them, I get an access denied error message saying I might not have permission. Another worker on the road with a laptop can connect and access files okay. When I try to use that person's credentials from here, I get the same response: connect okay, see shares, but no file access.
I have deleted the mappings I had used. No help.
There was a problem at that office about the time I lost connectivity, in that one of the PC's belched, and none of the office PC's could access server. I cleared the mappings on all machines and re-connected which solved their problems but not mine.
I have a pcAywhere connection to server so I can make adjustments from here. I tried adding this computer to AD, with no help. I checked all share permissions on server that I could, and they seem okay.
As I said, someone else can connect, just not me.
Faithfully Yours in Frustration...
