User account locked out ever vpn

By ssahlas ·
I connect to my network via windows vpn client and all is fine when conneting to resources except one. When I connect to one of my servers via \\ipaddress\ I get denied access and my account gets locked out in AD. I can connect to every other server on my lan without any problems. My client is XP Pro sp2 server is Windows 2003(all servers are win 2003). Has anyone heard of this and if so any advice as to what is wrong. Thanks

It's in the setting of the server that is denying you access to that file/Folder or whatever you either don't have the right privileges or the server has been setup wrong.

The file / share level permissions are fine.

I should have mentioned that when connecting from a different location as well as using a different pc to connect with, it works fine. The trouble is with the workstation not the server. When in the office, all is well. I could assume some type of infection and we'll be testing the pc on the local LAN today but I wasn't sure if anyone else has ever had this happen.

Hi!
My opinion that server verify even the IP adress of workstation. When you are connected in LAN, you have a frendly IP adress, and the connection is accepted. Whet you try to connect from outside you have an diferrent IP adress and the server not accept the connection.

Well since you have ruled out the Server you will have to look directly at the permissions on that particular Work Station.

Either something has been setup wrong or the End User has enough privileges to alter things that adversely affect the unit. There is only one certainty here the person in question will not own up to their mistake so your job is just that much harder.

As I'm sure you have checked the obvious things you'll need to look deeper or how about creating another user account and see if you can then access the VPN from the new User Account. If that works you can then transfer all the users data to the new account and delete the old account.

It just might work and is a lot faster than a reload.
