  • Windows Server 2008 VPN connection is good but I can't map any shared network drive

    Hi,

    I've just set up a windows server 2008 that configured with routing and remote access. I can VPN to my corporate network. I can ping local ip in the network. However, I can not map any shared network drive. Can anyone help?

    Thanks,

    Ken

    What happens when you try to map a drive???

    When you ping how are you pinging?? Do you use the name or the IP address of the device??

      Another thing that I haven't mension is that I have no problem remote desktop to the computer in the network.

      I ping the local ip address of the file server in the network and have a response.

      When I try to map my shared drive on my VPN client pc using:
      \\fileserver ip\sharedfolder

      with login= domain\user
      and password = domain user password

      After attempting to connect, it said:

      The network path \\fileserver ip\sharedfolder could not be found.

      Thanks,

          Or \\fqdn\sharedfolder

          What subnet are you using at work and at home?

            I tried:
            \\servername\sharefolder

            \\fqdn\sharefolder

            and get the same problem.

            I'm using 192.168.0.0/16 for both work and home.

            Thanks,

              The problem then is that you're using the same subnet at both sites. Change one of them and see if that helps. Long term I would advise migrating the office to a subnet that's not commonly used by "consumer" broadband routers.

                Thank you all for your inputs. I found the problems. It was the Symantec Network Threat Protection. When I disable this, everything is fine.
