I have an client with 2 offices each with their own server and domain. Users at location A need access to a folder on a network drive at location B. For some reason they don't want to do a Device to Device VPN between the buildings so since its just 2 users at location A that need this access i set up the client VPN to the firewall at location B. So I set up the VPN and from their workstations once the VPN is connected map the network drive to the share at location B using an account I created for them with access. And at the time I set it up it worked but now those 2 users have problems connecting to their local shared drives while the VPN is connected and even to the share at location B while its connected. they can usually get it to work if the reboot or disconnect the VPN and reconnect etc but its just not stable. is there a better way of doing this I haven't thought of?
