VPN connected but cant access window's shares

By chays33 ·
I have a new Cisco 5520 connected to isp and local lan. I ran the vpn wizard and configured laptop with cisco client. I can succesfuly connect to the vpn, ping the servers, and other devices, telnet to other cisco equipment on the lan, but when I go access my network drives (windows 2003 servers) I get an error "Microsoft windows network: the local device name is already in use. Connection has not been restored. I can ping by ip address and by host name with no problem. Any help is MUCH appreciated, thanks

Ports and protocols

You need to force windows client to use TCP for domain authentication:

Also you need to open up ports for Windows to be happy:

These are the required AD ports:

Service Port/protocol
RPC endpoint mapper
135/tcp, 135/udp

NetBIOS name service
137/tcp, 137/udp

NetBIOS datagram service

NetBIOS session service

RPC static port for AD replication

SMB over IP (Microsoft-DS)
445/tcp, 445/udp



Global catalog LDAP

Global catalog LDAP over SSL

88/tcp, 88/udp

53/tcp, 53/udp

WINS resolution (if required)
1512/tcp, 1512/udp

WINS replication (if required)
42/tcp, 42/udp
