Networking dos vpn isolated client issue

Set up is as follows. I have a network with two pc's with addressing 192.168.2.3, 192.168.2.4. These two PC are connect via DSL 3MB. One shared multifuction printer. I also have a software based VPN via micrsoft server 2003 (NB VPN is not site to site). On the other side of the VPN there is a file server and email server on address space 192.168.1.1. My email server is working fine but shares over the VPN are now not available on one client. (Please not it is only related to one pc on address space 192.168.2.*. Also printer stoped sharing loally on same client on 192.168.2.* side. Hope explaining correclty it seems to be a DOS on the VPN file sharing and local printing. The VPN connects fine and pings across to other site finding it hard to trouble shoot as only effecting one pc

what do you mean by:
>> but shares over the VPN are now not available on one client.

Are trying to map the share? what is the error message?
It might be host name issue since you might not have a wins server.

try to map by ip address like this:
\\ip-address-of-the-server\sharename

and see if it works

Hi

Thanks for feedback. The error messageI get is as follows "windows cannto find \\192.168.1.1\public

I am not using winsserver all shares a mapeed using \\ip-address-of-the-server\sharename. The strange thing is the printer which is network attached is not working as well. Very strange think its a local network issue.

The only shared folder on the server 192.168.1.1 is \\192.168.1.1\home but the issue here is the home share is configured for offline files as the device is a laptop. All other clents on the 192.168.1.2 address space are able to access the public share and home shares

check the the firewall. it seems it has the config to allow network only.
First of all, just for testing purposes, disable the firewall, and any other firewalls that you may have on the serverhosting the shares.

please post back and will get through it.

Can you ping the ip address of server from the other subnet?

Sorry for delay in getting back to you was out of the office. It seems to be a firewall issue (windows) The firewall was turn off. I restored to an earlier point and re run windows update. I believe it to be a windows up date firewall issue thanks for help
