Access to Network Share through VPN
Posted on 2014-03-30
Some VPN laptop clients cannot connect to a server share unless I turn off their windows (home/work) private firewall. We use a draytek router with the smartVPN client.
I really don't like the idea of turning off Windows Firewall. If the firewall is off, is it possible for those on the same Wi-Fi network to access files on the client's laptop? If so, how do I prevent this? Is there a rule I can create that will prevent this (e.g., only permit incoming traffic from our VPN?).
