I usually look towards WINS...

Can't "reach" it meaning unable to ping it, resolve the host name or just what in particular? Is the file server on the same subnet with you?

A rule of thumb I try to follow because it has solved many VPN related issues for me in the past: Identify a WINS Server in the TCP/IP properties of the machine you are using to connect via VPN.

search for the file server via ip

Once you remote in and our connected to your server, go to search and select search for computers or people, and then enter the file server's ip address, it should come up and then double click on it and you should be in.

DNS? on your local domain server?

by strongwatchman In reply to is not working

Are you running a local domain? If something like myserver.mydomain.local

If so...have you set your DNS servers correctly? In Network Connections under TCP/IP for your Local Area Connection...are the DNS addresses statically set?
192.168 first.
external address 2nd.
If you are running local DNS then you should be using your local DNS to resolve on the local domain.
External DNS servers will not resolve a local domain.
If you are not running local DNS server...then I am not sure how you will resolve the local domain machines...unless your WINS is working...but that is a big pain you should not need it.
