I have been trying to create a successful VPN connection to our office
network in Vista Business. After working through several discussion groups
and web searches, i still am having issues seeing network shares after a
successful VPN. Here is where I am:
I can create the VPN connection and recieve a valid IP from the Domain
controller. I can ping and remote desktop to any machine in the office
domain. But I cannot access the network shares through mapped drives or DFS
shares. I CAN use UNC paths to access the named shares, but whenever I try
to access a DFS share or a mapped drive network share, I recieve a
permissions error. All permissions are valid when the machine is hooked up
directly to the network. It is only through the VPN connection that the DFS
shares are not accessible.
Laptop is Vista Business, Servers are all Windows Server 2003 R2 with SP2. I
have IPv6 installed on the Domain Controller(which is also the DNS server).
We have a separate File and Print server where the shares are hosted. We VPN
through a watchguard X700 firewall. I have all current updates installed on
all machines. All VPNs from Windows XP pro boxes work without problems.
Only the Vista box has the issue.
What am I missing? Is this a DNS name resolution issue? An IPv6 issue? An
active directory issue? Something else? I am the sysadmin for our company,
so I can make any config changes that are necessary on either the servers or
the laptop. I would like to get this fixed before we buy any more Vista
