Access to shares when vpn established

Posted on 2014-12-01
Last Modified: 2016-02-03

I need help solving an issue regarding VPN.
I have a router adsl from Vodafone, a techinicolotr tg582n which are connected via lan to a juniper ssg20 which is proxy and firewall. Internally clients use the juniper to connect to internet, receive mail, etc....
The juniper has a vpn configured.
The problem is when i established a vpn can't access to shares or any servers.
I've tried create a route in the router of vodafone, but still can't access to shares.
The vodafone router is in 192.168.1.xxx, the juniper is in 192.168.0.xxx, and the vpn uses the ip 192.168.254.xxx.

What's new it's the vodafone router, so i think isn't necessary change anything in juniper?


Best regards.

Assuming routing configured correctly between VPN and Internal networks, on Juniper you need to allow ports for file share access between VPN and internal network (where the file server is?). If it is Windows file server see following for list of ports:

Hi Abdul,

Thanks for your reply.
One question, those ports should be configured in juniper or in adsl router?
I ask this, because, in past, one month ago, when vodafone changed his router, we can access vpn and shares, so probably those ports are opening or permited in juniper.

Best regards.

If the router provided by Vodafone has built in Firewall then ports must be allowed on them as well. Check Juniper to ensure the ports are allowed and it has correct IP address for router provided by Vodafone. If connection still fails monitor logs on Juniper (and also on Vodafone device if possible) to see where it is being blocked.

I'll try provide the ports, those weren't provided.

How can i check the ports in juniper? The juniper is a ssg20.


Best regards.
