Laptop locking and cannot print locally while connected to VPN
Posted on 2010-04-05
We just installed a Sonicwall TX210 at a client where they have a domain, Windows 2000 and 2003 servers and printers.
I setup one employee with the VPN on her 1 yar old Dell Laptop. She has AT&T DSL service at home with a Linksys wireless router she connects to. there is an HP Photosmart printer connected to the router. I added a TCP/IP port to XP on her laptop and XP found the printer and installed the driver.
There are two problems:
1. When she connects to the VPN,. she cannot print to her HP printer at home.
2. When logged into the VPN, she launches Outlook on her which connects to the Exchange server at the main office. She sees her email properly but adfter sending one email, her system locks.
