How do I access Mapped Drives through VPN connection?
Posted on 2008-10-03
I have set up a VPN Connection to our Company Network and at first glance everything seems to work ok. I can retrieve my emails from our VPOP Server and I can run VNC and connect to all the other System units with VNC Clients installed in our office.
The problem I have is when I attempt to connect to Mapped Drives on our Windows 2K Server. I can only access the drives when I switch off the Windows firewall on my laptop.
I have tried various Firewall Exceptions with no success and for obvious reasons I cannot continue to work with the Firewall Switched off.
NOTE: I have also tried disabling the Windows Firewall and installing and configuring Zonealarm on my laptop with the same result. I can only access the Mapped Drives when I switch Zonealarm off.
I feel there must be a simple solution to this problem yet I cannot see it. All help will be appreciated.
