VPN - mapping drives.

By sdalessio ·
I have a Windows 2000 network which I VPN into using a Window 98 PC. I can map drives fine onto the VPN Server (Which is also the domain controler). However, if I try to VPN onto another PC on the network, I can not find the PC or it tells me thatthe network is busy? Sometimes I can map to it, but rarely?

please help.

thank you

VPN - mapping drives.

With the info available, I'd hazard to guess that it's probably a name resolution issue. Are you running WINS on your Windows 2000 network? You've obviously got DNS running, but for Windows 98 to work properly in such an environment, you need WINSto do the name-to-IP resolution and vice-versa. One way to check this would be to try mapping the drive using the IP address of the PC instead of the computer name. If that fixes your problem, then your issue is most likely a lack of WINS...or youcould always resort to using LMHOSTS files!
