I'm not a Mac expert at all, but manage a Windows 2003 SBS environment and have been asked to get someone's Mac OSX Lion connected from their home via VPN so they can access a shared folder.
I was able to successfully configure the VPN connection and am able to ping the Windows server by IP address, so I know I'm getting a good PPTP connection.
I'm not sure where to go from here, though. When I go to Go/Connect to server and put in the server's IP address or name, it immediately comes back with an error saying that the server couldn't be contacted and to contact your system administrator.
What am I missing?
