Cannot connect to one specific server through vpn
Posted on 2008-10-09
Let me first say I am not very familiar with networking, the network was in place when I started at my company. We are using a cisco router with pix programming. When I log in from home, I can hit the company shared hard drive, the backup server, and our IBM server. In March we added another Dell server on which resides the data files for a program loaded on each laptop. When accessing through the VPN we cannot hit the Dell server and the program on the laptop cannot run as it can't access the data files.
I can remote access to the desktop of that server.
The Dell has been set up with to FTP information from our vendors to the server for the above mentioned program.
Is there something I can look at to see why that is the only server I can't access?
Secondly, my boss want to use his laptop and home and do everything that he can do in the office, is there a better way than VPN?
