VPN connection

By elmer ·
My vpn gets connected, the only pc i can browse is the one i'm connected to. If i go to network neighboorhood, i see other machines but when i try to access it i get network path not found,
I can ping the IP address but not the name.
Any suggestions.
Pretty much i'm connecting through vpn, and trying to get to a shared folder on another pc.

type this in the run box to get to the pc



add an entry in your host file for this specific pc


when pinging by name, use the entire pc name i.e.

Ask you Administrator, how is your vpn setup? Are you setup just to get to a group and nothing else. What are your user rights when you login to the vpn? You need to find out if the shared folder is still shared and shared with you. You can have a computer that is on a network but will not have access to the network. Because the computer/user will not have access to the network.

Did you get an answer? I can ping my network also but can not see any shares or the machines.

I tried using the \\ipaddress\pc name but it still said it could not be found even though I can ping the ip address.
