Single computer not responding over VPN
Posted on 2014-01-29
I have a client with two locations connected by VPN through Netgear FVS318G firewalls on each side. They have a windows 7 professional sharing files, we are moving them to a real server but in the meantime this solution was working ok for their small office until recently when they have been unable to reach the Windows 7 "server" from the remote office. From the remote office we are unable to browse or ping the Win 7 server, but the local network can ping and browse both the Win 7 server and all machines on the remote side, also the remote side can ping and browse all other computers on the local network EXCEPT this one Win 7 server. When looking at the firewall logs while running a ping from the remote side to the server it looks like the packet is making it to the local firewall as it shows a SRC of itself and a destination of the local server IP address, my thought is it might not be getting back out to the remote side, however I see no dropped packets listed in the logs. Any ideas are appreciated.
