Cannot map drive over VPN on SBS 2003
Posted on 2009-05-12
I just rebuilt my SBS 2003 server and everything is working with the except for one thing: I cannot map a drive via our hardware VPN. The odd thing is that I can Remote Desktop to the server without any difficulty.
Looking at the server event viewer: DCOM 10001: DCOM was unable to communicate with the computer "IP" using any of the configured protocols.
I cannot add the remote machine via ConnectComputer:

* Open IIS Help, which is accessible in IIS Manager (inetmgr), and search for topics titled About Security, Limiting Access by IP Address, IP Address Access Restrictions, and About Custom Error Messages.
I added the IP of the remote machine to IIS to allow access.
What can I try next?
