VPN Connect but No Network Resources OSX 10.6 and iVPN
Posted on 2010-11-21
I've searched asked questions but can't find anyone with exactly this problem.
I have setup VPN to my home network via iVPN. All computers are Mac running OSX Snow Leopard. I am able to connect to the network via the VPN no problem but I am not seeing any of the resources on my home network. I have checked the iVPN basic troubleshooting and made sure the VPN service is first in my list. I'm using the iVpn DHCP range 192.168.56.100 - 105 on a network with a range of 192.168.56.1 - 50.
When connected via the VPN I can successfully ping all the devices on my network but I'm not seeing them for file sharing access. Sharing is turned on.
When multiple computers are comnected to the VPN, I CAN share between them but not between the Home network resources. It seems I need a "bridge" or NAT between the iVPN DHCP and the home network?? (Just guessing)
By the way, when I connect the laptop to my home network directly (not via VPN) I can see all network resources normally.
I'm guessing this is an IP issue, but I'm lost as to what I need to change. Can anyone help please?
