Mapping drives over VPN

By culukn2 ·
We have just deployed some VPN software for remote users. However once connected to the coporate network a user can't map the same network drives as she has when she is in plant. I sent her the logon batch file but she still gets an error that the "Computer name is not recognized on the network" or something to that effect. I assume this means since her computer in not in the server manager when the script runs it doesn't recognize it. Can anyone help with this? We are running Windows NT 4.0

Check, if you have NetBIOS traffic enabled on VPN interface (look in "advanced" settings on TCP/IP protocol). Do you have WINS server enabled? If yes, configure it in TCP/IP settings. If not, create LMHOSTS file with names and addresses for servers,you want to connect. You may rename file "lmhosts.sam" in "/winnt/system32/drivers/etc" to "lmhosts" and create entries according to examples provided. Then try to type something like "\\server-name" to look, if yo will see shares. Also, check if NetBIOS names are in cache (use nbtstat -c).

Good luck.

It also depends on the system you are using if the VPN id's are not attached to the NT id's then they do not have security access to the drive's. You may need to tech the user how to map a drive thru explorer connecting as another user and putting in the user's NT id as domain name\user name and then the password.
