VPN- HELP!!

By Jessica Lynn ·
We currently have 2 servers. For the most part, one authenticates (server2); the other is a file server/Exchange (server1). We have been using VPN (PPTP) for the past year. Server2 authenticates and lets the user on to server1. We had to do someLoad sharing and moved some files on to server2. Here is the strange part. If a remote user is in the office they can see the files on server2; however, if they use VPN they can see the server in Network Neighborhood, but cannot access the server;however server1 is fully available. To make the problem even more strange, is if the user dials directly into the network, they can see server2.

Any ideas?

There's a checkmark somewhere in the server RAS or VPN setup to "access this server only". Check that.

We've selected "access the entire network" in all VPN ports in RAS.

Please give more info on what server they can gain access on what server they cant (server1 or server2) and which one they can see or cant see.

Sounds to me like the protocol settings on the client machines are not set correctly. Seems to me thatv the tcp/ip and the ipx protocols were not set on the client side. set these protocols and this will resolve your situaution. Allowing full veiw and access to both servers. Go in to the dialup networking on your client machine and add the tcp/ip protocol as well as your ipx protocol reboot. Logon to your vpn and browse the network neighborhood. You should find both servers and all files on either. If this is not the answer then it lies in your user rights.
