Windows VPN can't access FileShare on server
Posted on 2013-11-29
I got a problem with a VPN setup on a SBS 2008 server. I can connect on the VPN, I get an IP Address, I can ping the server and router, I can access the configuration webpage of the router and I can access the OWA webpage on the server but I cannot access fileshare on the server.
Whenever I try to access the file share via "\\192.168.1.2" (Server IP) it says "The system cannot access the file"...
Here's more info on the setup:
Windows SBS 2008 (Acting as the VPN server, SBS IP: 192.168.1.2)
-The server as been running great for about 4 years now
Basic TP-Link router (Port 1723 and 500 forwarded to server, Router IP: 192.168.1.1)
I use Windows VPN configuration as PPTP
-Everything connect "smoothly" and fast
I'm NOT in the same IP range as the server network
-My IP : 10.0.0.10 and the remote server IP : 192.168.1.2
Basic configuration on the NPS to allow a certain group to connect
-I'm testing with a Domain Admin account
I did this setup many times on others server and never had trouble. It's just this one I cannot find what's blocking me.
Thanks in advance!
