Windows 10 Blocking Incoming from Cisco VPN

Desktop is Windows 10 and I have several shared drives.  Shares work fine when I'm on the same network.  When outside the network, connected back through a Cisco VPN all shares are blocked.  If I turn off the Windows Firewall shares are available.  Need some help on how to make these available without turning off the firewall.

I was reading something about NAP, Network Access Protection Enforcement for VPN. Do you have this enabled?

The machine I'm trying to connect to is a Windows 10 desktop not a server.  The machine I'm connecting from is another Windows 10 with the Cisco VPN connection.

Are you allowing Windows File sharing on your firewall?

tparrettAuthor Commented:
Yes - it works fine when I'm in the network...the problem is only when I'm outside the network.

Next test, can you go to the command prompt and ping the server? Let me know if it pings.

tparrettAuthor Commented:
just to clarify - - not a server....it's a workstation and no I can't ping.

You mentioned shared drives? Where are they located? For me they are located on a server?

tparrettAuthor Commented:
I have multiple drives in my Windows 10 desktop computer that are shared.

Edward PamiasCommented:
Ahhhhh ok. I was not clear where they were. Can you tell me the steps on how you remote to this Windows 10 PC? DO you use VPN then RDP to the machine?

tparrettAuthor Commented:
I connect to the VPN and open File Explorer \\192.168.1.20  from their I navigate to the drive I want.

Edward PamiasCommented:
Does the Windows 10 PC use a static IP or DHCP?

tparrettAuthor Commented:
static

Edward PamiasCommented:
OK... this seems like an odd fix, can you have someone set up the machine as DHCP reboot, then put it back to static. How come you are not using the hostname?

tparrettAuthor Commented:
Fixed the problem - - Went into Firewall Advanced Rules and filtered by File & Print Sharing - - for all the enabled rules (predefined on install) I added the VPN ip network # for Remote IP Address under the Scope tab.  VOILA.  Issued fixed.

I did mention the file and print sharing in a previous comment? See above.
