Access Windows 7 Share from VPN

Hey guys,

We have a Windows 7 PC here thats on the network. Now, my VPN users come in as 10.2.1.x /24. They cannot ping or access on the windows 7 pc. The windows 7 pc does have the windows firewall enabled.

How can allow ICMP and UNC share access to the VPN users?

Need more information regarding the configuration, typically a router or route path is needed to access across subnets.

This is a vpn connection no routing needed.

It's a win 7 question
On the Windows 7 run box, type "Windows Firewall and Advanced Security" and then click to open it.

Go to Inbound rule and allow the following three rules.

"File and Printer Sharing (Echo Request - ICMPv4-In)"
"File and Printer Sharing (Echo Request - NB-Session-In)"
"File and Printer Sharing (Echo Request - SMB-In)"
Allow ShareAllow ICMP
