I am trying to connect to map a drive on the server on a client's network through a VPN from my home office.  When I am in their office on my laptop connected directly to their network, I was able to map the drive.  However, when I am at home and connected through the VPN, it says "Windows cannot access \\192.168.0.2\data"  The ip address on the client's network is 192.168.0.2.  My home network uses an address scheme of 192.168.1.x.

What VPN are you using?  Windows?  Cisco?  Netgear?  OpenVPN? something else?

Can you ping the IP of the remote system?  Are you sure you're connected to the VPN?  Can you post your IPCONFIG /ALL results

Never mind. I found the problem.  I recently upgraded my anti-virus software and the firewall settings were set to the defaults.  I needed to identify the remote network as a trusted network.
