I have two small peer to peer networks at separate locations connected with a SonicWall site to site vpn. I have a Windows 7 Pro machine at one location that I have a shared folder on that users use as a "pseudo" server. I would like the users on the other side of the vpn to have access to that folder but Windows 7 is seeing that network as being a public network and not allowing access to the shared folder. Turning the firewall off on that machine allows access but that's not an acceptable solution. Is there a way to allow or to tell Windows firewall the other network is private or trusted ?
