Windows XP VPN Client cannot see folder shares except those shared by the VPN Server
Posted on 2006-11-28
I have a strange one (i believe)
We have an XP VPN client, using the MS PPTP client connecting into a W2k server in London over the internet.
On the network in London we have a few different servers that host shared folders.
The VPN server has little disk space and as such doesnt host the shared folders.
The problem is that once the Client has connected, he cannot see any of the network shares of any other machines.
In actual fact, he cannot ping, or be pinged by anything other than the VPN Server.
Shared folders on the VPN server ARE accessible to the VPN Client.
There is NO firwewall on the VPN server. the network is 192.168.1.x the vpn client gets allocated 192.168.1.201 when he connects.
The RRAS console has been used to configure the VPN connection. No extra routing table entry should be required as the VPN client and the Workstations on the network are on the same subnet. The fact i cannot ping does suggest its a routing issue though, what can i do?
Im at a loss of what to try next.
Thanks in anticipation of your kind assistance.
