Please can anyone help
I have setup a VPN gateway between 2 x Netgear FVS318n routers using the supplied VPN Wizard.
The Gateway was created and it connects and works - partialy

In HQ is a SBS2008 server
In the remote are 2 PCs one on the Domain WIN8 and one not on the domain WINXP.
Both the remotes can access the shares on the server with no problem.

But the server and PCs in HQ cannot access the shares on the PCs in the remoteoffice if the FIREWALL on either PC is turned on.
If I turn OFF the firewall on the PCs full access from HQ to the shares is available.
On The XP machine I turn off the firewall.
On the Win8 machine I only need to turn off the Public part of the firewall.


Neither of the PCs are runnig antivurus or 3rd party firewalls.

Any ideas?

Hello,

You need to confirm that file and print sharing are turned on.  Just enable the rule in the firewall on the machines.

Also, why don't you have an Anti-Virus on the machines?  This is a must have!

If you mean on the XP machine  that "File And Printer Sharing" in the LAN proerties is ticked, yes it is.

Ok

On the XP Machine, go into Control Panel> Windows Firewall> Exceptions Tab.  Is file and Printer sharing ticked?

That is ticked,
The 2 computers in this remote network can acccess each others shares, so File & Printer sharing is enabled in full

Is there a domain setup?  If so are they member of the domain?

What is the scope of the File and printer sharing? If you click edit on the rule it will probably just have the subnet as the scope.  

May be worth trying to add the remote subnet as well.

In scope:
Tried using the HQ WAN ip that did not work
Tried using HQ lan 192.168.20.0/255.255.255.0 that did not work
Tried using HQ pc address 192.168.20.15 that did not work
Tried putting a tick "any computer including those on the internet" that did not work.

Turn off the firewall XP - that works
Turn off the Public firewall WIN8 - that works
