vpn into sbs2008 connecting / registering but not seeing local resources

Hi,

I am working on a clients pc windwos 7, he has the miscrosft standard vpn connector on his pc and it connects back to a sbs2008 server over the internet.

when you click on it, it goes through all the motions and connects and registers the client pc .. all is good there.

the ip is correctly issued etc etc

however if you go to try to connect to a network driver / share it doesnt see it.

in fact you cant ping the ip of the server or the name of the server....

any suggestions ?

Hi c45,

This is a known behavior. You can pass it by following this steps:
1, open Routing and reote access
2, under servername\IPv4 right click on DNCP Relay agent
3, new interface - internal

reconnect VPN and check if it works. There is no need terestart any service

are you using 192.168.1.0 network, this is common ip of default home routers and can cause issues. Either change the ip on the home router which if there is only one user using VPN probably easiest. However to correct it so you don't have an issue again with the server change the LAN ip to 192.168.25.0 or anything other than 192.168.1.0 network. '

Please confirm the LAN IP.

check the scopes on DHCP are they the following:

Start / Administrative Tools / expand DHCP server / expand IPv4 / expand scope / scope options

003 Router: IP address
006 DNS Servers: IP address (sbs 2008)
015 Domain Name: domain.local

Please confirm you have DHCP running on the server?

still no joy.. interesting point is that when you connect to the vpn, it kills the internet connection locally
