I have just setup a new sbs 2008 server & one of the employees wants VPN access. I went thru the motions of configuring both the server & router & tested from my pc at home. I connect successfully & have full access to all shares, outlook etc.

The issue I'm having is that at the end users home they can successfully connect to the VPN connection which shows them connected but I'm unable to map to any of the shared drives or connect to outlook. I also tried on a second pc but get exactly the same issue. I thought it may be the firewall on the end users router so I disabled it but it made no difference.

I also tested the connection from a 3rd location & that worked fine.

Any ideas ?
