Routing and Remote Access denying VPN user access to domain controller
Posted on 2007-10-04
We have Routing and Remote Access running on Windows Server 2003. VPN users are able to successfully connect to this server and access MOST of the network drives and servers on network (same location and subnet). That is except for one, the domain controller and DNS server. VPN users, once connected, are not able to access the shared folders from explorer by either typing in the name or the ip address. Windows returns the error as if the server does not exist, although all other internal workstations and servers can get to this server just fine. The other thing that is strange is that a VPN users can successfully ping the domain/DNS server's IP address.
It seems like there may be an issue with RAS as though it won't let VPN users connect to that particular server. This happens for both XP and Vista users.
Also, the "hosts" file on each of the VPN user's systems is setup correctly.
