Re: W7 VPN: Connected but no network shares
Is the other side of this VPN connection on your local LAN, or over the internet?
I'd try using the PUBLIC IP address of the other end -- making sure that the proper port(s) are open
and port forwarding is set up.
$20 says if you tried to traceroute from your PC to 192.168.0.x, you get a bunch of ***s after the 2nd
or 3rd hop?
Yes it is over the internet and the remote location has a static IP address from the ISP. Yes port 1723 is forwarded in the router at the remote endpoint. I can see the other workstations, though I do not need to access them. I need to access the workstation that is running the Incoming Connection, but for some reason it remaps that workstation to my own local computer's network shares. I'm thinking it must be by design, and am tempted to run the Incoming Connection on one of the other remote workstations so then I can hopefully access the computer that I need.
If you notice in the first picture it show the client's IP address of 192.168.0.100. The client is me, but that address should be the remote workstation's IP. Why is it giving it to me and using my own network shares? I do not know how to access this particular computer with this happening.
Any other suggestions before I try setting up the Incoming Server to another workstation on the remote network?
