VPN connectivity
THIS IS NOT AS SIMPLE AS IT SEEMS. I appreciate your time and effort, I have a weird one here...hopefully someone can help. I have a VPN server setup. working perfectly. I connect to it from computer A- using xp pro sp2. everything works. B - using VISTA ultimate - everything works. C - using xp pro sp2 - I can connect to the vpn server, and nothing else works. Now, computer A connected from internet connection 1. computer B + C connected from the SAME interenet connection..meaning I know with 100% certaintly it's a rule/problem in computer C i'm just not sure where it's coming from. what's causing it. does any one have ANY ideas? please?!?!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Check on your VPN server whether is allows multiple connections from a single ip. You can also disconnect the Vista computer and then try with WinXP SP 3 computer.

    What are your share permissions? File permissions? Trying granting Everyone full access (for now) and see what happens. I've seen where NetBIOS names won't cross a VPN connection but you can still connect if you use the host's IP address. I've been too lazy to figure out why but if anyone else wants to chime in, please do and you can help us both. :-)

    I agree,it is probably a name address translation. If this is the case a host file of all the servers needing to be accessed with ip and names will generally fix this.
