  • understand vpn connection

    Good evening

    Let's say that I want my brother access to my computer to a shard folder. I config my computer in rras server to be vpn server, and I donít hang my internet connection

    Now I tell to my brother to connect to the internet and than to create a vpn connection.

    When he creates the vpn connection he putt's my ip that I have now (the ip that I get from ISP). Now only he needs to do type username and password that I

    Give him. And than he needs to access and type \\\sharefolder

    All that is true??

    It all depends on what protocol you're using. L2TP will request that the user authenticate via a local user account. Other methods require a preshared key and are a bit more difficult to setup.

    But to answer your question - once connected he should be able to connect to computers on your network as if they were local.

    \\\sharefolder should work

    assuming he authenticated using a privileged account.
