VPN Authentication Issue
Posted on 2009-04-07
Hi experts, I have the following setup, sbs 2003 with shared folders, in front of this a netgear vpn firewall. I have a couple of domain users using laptops, when they go outside of the office they can connect to the server using the netgear vpn software to establish a connection and then a rdp to remotely access the server.
The issue I have is I dont want the users to have full remote access I just want them to access shared folders. So I connect to the network using the netgear vpn then I go to run and type \\server ip, at this point I'm prompted for a username and password, if I supply the currently logged in users domain username and password I get the following error.
The username you typed is the same as the username your logged in with.
If I use a different username and password I can access the folder shares no problem, but this is obviously no good as the user isnt then able to access the correct folder shares.
Any help on this is greatly appreciated.
