Strange VPN problem with xp client, however, vista works

hello, i have a very strange problem
When i tried to make a vpn connection from vista to our windows 2k3 SBS with Ras i have no problem at all
but when i try to do the same with a random (clean install test pc) windows xp machine
i get an error denied after i made a VPN and i try to connect to a share.
the strange thing is my route print .. (2 attached, xp and vista)
it shows a route to a gateway with my vpn ipadres
that shouldnt work right?

what can i do to fix this?

thanks
Best Regards, Robert

The default gateway is routing all your traffic through your VPN which is exacly what you want to happen. If your VPN is being established then it's more likely to be an issue with security on the server side. Does the username have permission to use the share?

VPN connection is succesful, my tcp/ip traffic also, outlook connect over VPN to the exchange server and ping etc. works, everything looks good, exept for shares. As said, with the same account/credentials from a vista client and same VPN settings is works, so security on the server side seems ok. Also when the user is on the network itself on location without VPN all rights and login sequences are without any problems. So just over VPN with the xp client I can access NO shares...  I really do not know what to look for.

Try accessing the shares using the IP address of the server, eg. \\192.168.1.15\share. It may be your DNS settings are not working rather than a security problem.

Will You Be GDPR Compliant by 5/28/2018?

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

Hy, thanx for the response.

Although this form says I'm a beginner on this subject, i'm not. I've tried all "normal" moderate level IT professional knowledge on this, so route prints, persistant routes etc.
I hoped that somebody already have had the same problem...

THanx a lot in advance for any comment...

Hy,

Thanx for the help but it didn't work, I am running out of options, reconfigures RAS and checked all port settings, route tables etc. With Win XP still not possible to access network shares, same credentials, same protocol, same settings under Vista and everything OK... (!!???!)

Please help.

Thanx

Sounds like a permissions issue, not RRAS/VPN.
Have you tried accessing by adding the domain name to the user name such as:
domain\user

How did you create the VPN connection? With SBS, the proper way to do this so that routing, name resolution, and permissions are set, is to use the SBS wizard to set up the VPN, and download the custom SBS VPN client. Details can be found at:

RobWill,

I'm getting a little further, althuogh I configured it all like you proposed already and always.
I worked and one time not anymore, and same users on Vista clients had no problem.
I will try this at the real clients tomorrow (in like 12-15h. from now) and will report back.

Thanx al lot for now.

Let us know how you make out, and if you haven't tried domain\user, give that a shot.

rvefferenAuthor Commented:
Ok, tested and it worked as \\ipadres\share with credentials domain\username and password

Thanx RobWill and all the rest for responding!
