Re: [FiOS] Cannot map drives when on corporate VPN thru Frontier

You don't need to ping the \\ip address.

Just enter that into your run window and see it will show you the available shares so you can map the drive.


Beaverton, OR
I can ping it but when I map it it says the remote device will not accept the connection. I have gone back and changed the MTU setting with no difference. What gets me is that it is only Frontier(my home provider where this problem occurs, same laptop).

I have now removed the actiontec router from the equation and am coming directly out of the ONT with a Dlink router, all the same problems exist.

Here's what I know:
It is not home router related.
It is not my laptop related.
It is not MOCA (Actiontec coax bridge) related.
It is not the Actiontec router
I can ping the server I am trying to map but I cannot connect to it.
