Config: DSL connected to office computers thru Netopia r9100. No server. Two separate work groups (within the same company) who share printer/copier and internet. All machines running WXPpro.
I have set up a vpn connection on a Netopia 9100 for an employee to log on to the network and hopefully remote desktop to his computer. I can connect the VPN tunnel but cannot get past there.I cannot see shared drives on the network nor does his computer's address show live when I do an IP scan. WIndows firewall is off on his machine.
If I connect to the VPN and try to RD his machine by name it say it cannot find it. I set his computer to a fixed address outside DHCP and tried to connect to the address and it says it cannot connect. I set up an inbound VPN connection for his machine and attempted to connect thru that to at least see his files, but it says it can't connect.
I think I'm missing something pretty basic here but oddly enough I've only worked with server based vpn's before.
Do I have to change to 192.168.2.xxx for this location in order to allow it to show up on a computer using a 192.168.1.xxx address?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
