  • Hyper-V over VPN Issues

    Hi guys/gals,

    Having some issues with Hyper-V machines and resources from them not being avialable to users at remote end points of a VPN.

    First of all users from different subnets cannot connect via Remote Desktop to Hyper-V clients I have created. I believe this is due to firewall rules limiting access to users only to the subnet where the server lives, I've been unable to find the group policy object which controls this setting.

    Secondly I'm sharing a drive from a virtual database file server running Server 2003 the problem is that the mapped drive is not available to users on other subnets, trying to map the drive using IP address\share or computername\share doesn't work. Browsing for it doesn't work either the reason for this I am unsure of, something to do with NETBIOS or DNS.

    Any pointers that you could give me?

    Regards,

    Will

    The drive mapping failure isn't a DNS issue if browsing by IP address also fails.

    Can you tell us a bit more about your environment e.g. what firewalls are in place, what the VPNs terminate on etc?

      To me this sounds like a routing issue. Please verify your routing tables on your layer 3 devices.

        Setup is as follows:

        SBS 2008 Server with a Windows Firewall --> Netgear DGFV338 with a firewall --> IPSec VPN to either a DGFV338 at one VPN endpoint or to a DG834G at the second VPN endpoint (both have firewalls) --> Windows XP/7 Client Machines with Firewalls.

        Will have a look at routing tables on Netgear routers.
