I have a PPTP VPN setup in RRAS on Windows SBS 2008.
The VPN seems to works fine, I can ping everything on the other end of the tunnel. RDP into workstations, access shares on the workstations. I can telnet into the exchange server and send mail. Get the default IIS page at http://server.
From the SBS I could even map shares I have on my local workstations, but when I try to access any of the shares on the server over the VPN using hostname or IP it fails, "The network path was not found".
Not really sure whats going on here, I've shut the firewall off without success. I reconfigured the VPN from scratch and rebooted the server and it didn't change a thing. I'm unsure how long this has been like this since no one uses the VPN to access file shares on the server. The few that use it just RDP into their workstations, no issue there. Though recently they started replacing a few desktops with laptops and they have nothing to RDP into, they only need access to a few spreadsheets while at home or on the road so I thought the VPN would work, I guess not..
Having got a new Windows 7 (64 bit Ultimate) PC, I decided to turn my old PC (XP Pro) into a file server. After much fun with Windows networking, I have one particular problem. Listing files on the server from the Win7 machine is ridiculously slow. A few directories have large numbers of files in them, around 10,000 image files. Browsing to one such folder on Win7, I have timed a listing and it took 48 seconds! That's a very long time to wait for a file listing. I have a network connection monitor running and it doesn't seem to be overloading the network- data was dribbling down the 100Base-T cable at about 200kiloBITS per second. Trying things the other way around, the same folder if placed on the Win7 machine and listed from the old XP machine can deliver a complete listing in about 5 seconds. I'm not sure which end has the problem; either the server is delivering file names very slowly or (my guess) the Win 7 machine is asking for them very slowly, perhaps asking for lots of crap that isn't needed like icons or file dimensions or something.
I'm using my 655 as a WAP, so nothing is connected to the WAN port. Since I run a SBS2008 in my home, I also have the 655's DHCP disabled.If I enable Network Filtering, everything inbound/outbound on the LAN ports works except accessing the Admin page. Even if I put the connecting PC's LAN MAC in the tablet.
Two computers on the home network:Dell desktop running Vista (computer name PJ) is wired to a Belkin routerThinkPad laptop running Win7 (computer name ThinkPad) connected wirelessly to routerThe desktop (PJ) can see the laptop (ThinkPad) and access it's shares.On the laptop the desktop name (PJ) shows up under NETWORK but clicking on the computer name shows: "Windows cannot access \PJ"I have turned off Windows Firewall and AVG anti-virus on PJ but CANNOT ping PJ from ThinkPad[CODE]
I have inherited a sbs 2008 network where they have a SBS2008 server and Server2008 running as a terminal sever at the main office and they have 2 satellite offices. These offices all connect through router to router vpn tunnels. The main site is on 10.0.0 and dhcp is done by the sbs. Satellite site a is on 10.0.10 and dhcp is done by the vpn router and Satellite site b is on 10.0.5 and dhcp is also done by the vpn router. All client computers can run rdp to access shares / programs etc on the two servers but when trying to push out group policy, antivirus updates or even using remote control through the SBS2008 server it is hit or miss. DHCP records on the SBS server do not seem to update correctly, manually changing the ip address in DNS records results in warnings that the PTR record cannot be created.
So I am wondering if the configuration they currently have setup is correct. What might be stopping some but not all computers from updating, why I can connect to some but not all computers at site "a" but I am not able to remotely connect to any computers at site "b".Why I can do remote installs of Eset Endpoint Security on roughly 10% of the clients but the other 90% fail.
Can I configure a PIX (515), as PPTP client to establish a tunnel with non-Cisco PPTP server ? Can my PIX initiate this type of connection ?Today, I use a PC with PPTP client to establish this and I want replace this with a PIX and I don´t want depends of a PC.
I`ll get straight to the point. I have at work a domain of computers. on one of the computers (I have admin rights) I want to share a folder that can be accessed by other computers that are not in the domain. By default accessing that share requires a user/pass. My question is: can I configure something on the computer (running windows 2008 server) to the shared folder so that other computers that are not from the domain will gain access to without user/pass requirement (like a normal share)?
I replaced my old Linksys WRT54G wireless router with the new E3000 wireless router. The installation was a breeze, but not what followed henceforth. I was able to access the internet on my wireless desktop/laptop/Netflix ROKU player/WD TV live media player, but lost access to all the network shares. I spent a lot of useless time with Linksys chat support and phone support, where they said their responsibility is only getting the internet working. They said they are not responsible for file and printer sharing issues, and suggested I use a third-party paid support package to resolve my issues. Over and above spending a hefty amount for the lates top of the line E3000 router, I was not going to shell out additional money for support.
Thinking that it could probably be due to some Windows XP firewall/anti-virus (McAfee) issues, I disconnected the E3000 and connected the old WRT54G back again. Lo and behold, everything started working fine again. I could access the shared folders of my desktop (to which my router is attached) and printer, from the wireless laptop/desktop/media player just as before without any problems. I then switched back to the E3000 and lost the shares again. So I have come to the conclusion, there is definitely some setting within the E3000 that is preventing the file and printer sharing. I just can't figure out what it could be, and am at a point of returning it back to the store as defective. The extra N-speed is useless to me if my devices can't access the network shared content.Also, I tried to set up the UPnP media server feature of the E3000 by attaching USB storage and configuring it via the Linksys web based utility, but my media player is unable to access the content.
Upon attaching my external storage I was able to create a share, copy files and access it successfully from everywhere. Now when I attempt to add an additional share, the router lets me create it but when I try to move access groups over from the available groups, the >> buttons are greyed out. The one working share has the admin and Everyone groups with access. Any additional share I create has the admin group in it by default, but I can't add any more groups. I am logged into the router as admin and logged into the pc as a local admin. I am also unable to change the rights from my pc on a share (access denied). I AM, however, able to map a drive to a new share successfully, but when I copy files over, a few minutes later the filenames are there but they show up as 0 byte files.
I am working on a Drupal site which is on a virtual server (the way it's been explained to me). I've been told I need to work with it through webdev. So I can copy a file off the server and onto my local machine. I make my edits and then try to upload it to the server. I get locked out with the message: Error 0x80070021: The process cannot access the file because another process has locked a portion of the file. I have tried shutting down my code editor, opening and closing the connection, tried different methods of reaching the server (Cyberduck and through Window's map network feature) to no avail. What can I do?
I would like to setup a VPN to allow employees nomad that connect to our network from outside. Our router is a Cisco SA520 I tried different configurations without success ...Here is the current VPN configuration:I created my users IPSec, I can connect remotely, but I do not have network access ... Unable to access network shares, impossible to ping.
My company is using an RV016 router as a gateway to our internal network. My end goal is to allow remote users to access network shares via Samba.I've been trying to create a VPN using the router with absolutely no luck. I've tried QuickVPN. I've tried creating a client-to-site group vpn. I've tried creating a client-to-site tunnel vpn. I've tried pptp. Nothing will allow me to establish a VPN connection. Sometimes there is information logged in the router but most of the time there is not.
I have an RV042 using Quick VPN to connect to a remote network. I have port 1723 forwarded to a static IP address on a Windows 7 Pro 64 bit PC. I can establish the VPN and ping a printer but not the Win 7 PC. I can not acccess any shares on the pc via the IP address. It has Norton Antivirus and Windows Firewall. This remote PC replaced a Windows xp PC that allowed access to the shares. I have tried access with a Windows XP Pro and Windows Vista Home Premium PC. Neither have worked.
I am trying to set up a PPTP VPN connection which also provides internet access. I have the following configuration. The router named "Router1" connects 2 computers PC1 and PC2 on the LAN side with a network address of 192.168.1.0/24. It is a PPTP server and a DHCP server. It gives IP addresses to PC1 and PC2. It has a static address of 188.8.131.52 on the LAN side and a static address of 10.2.9.1 on the WAN Side. PC3 has a static address of 10.2.9.2 and is connected to the WAN port of Router1. "Router2" is connected to the LAN side of Router1 and it has a static IP of 192.168.1.1. Router2 is connected to the internet and provides internet connection to PC1 and PC2. PC1 and PC2 connects fine to the internet and can see each other. However, PC3 cannot connect to the internet even though it is connected to Router1 by PPTP VPN connection. PC3 can see PC1, PC2, Router1 and Router2 but it cannot connect to the internet because Router1 does not give it the default gateway(192.168.1.1) to connect it. When PC3 connects via PPTP, It receives a correct IP address(10.2.9.3), correct DNS addresses but the ip4 default gateway field is left blank, and the DHCP option is not enabled on connection properties of PC3. Router1 is a DD-WRT firmware router (DLink Dir 400) and has PPTP server enabled as a service. How do I get Router 1 to give PC3 a default gateway IP? And how do I forward all outgoing packets from Router 1 to Router 2? I do not need port forwarding for some ports, I need full access to the internet from PC3 though the PPTP connection via Router2.
We would like to have the ability to connect to a VPN of a business we recently acquired. When connecting to it directly from the Internet (no firewall), it is accessible. However, behind our firewall, there is no access. We are using Cisco ASA 8.2 (2).Currently, we have an entry as follows:
-object-group service PPTP tcp -port-object eq pptp
access-list inside_access_in extended permit tcp any host object_name object-group PPTP. we want any device within our network to be able to access the VPN via PPTP.
my customer has a very basic LAN+WLAN configuration:
- 1 switch (not Cisco) - 1 DSL router which is the default gateway (not Cisco) - 2 Wi-Fi Access Points (Cisco AIR-AP1131AG-E-K9)
If he tries to establish a PPTP VPN when he is connected to the wired LAN, it works but when he tries the same from the wireless LAN it doesn't work. He says he'd tested it with Windows Firewall disabled. Is there any configuration command that can enable/disable PPTP VPN traffic pass through a Wi-Fi connection? I've never seen something like this and I use PPTP VPNs over a Wi-Fi connection every day without any particular configuration on the access point.
Here's the APs config:

I've encountered a problem when using PPTP VPN to access my network. I can connect in and able to ping the hosts connected to the RV110W. [code] On the local network, I am able to ping the hosts in 192.168.250.x from 192.168.251.x and vice versa.Static routes are configured to ensure that all networks are reachable.The problem comes when I tried to VPN (PPTP) in from a remote location using the Windows XP's built in default VPN dialer.When connected, I can ping all the hosts on 192.168.254.xxx segments, but when I tried to ping the hosts in 192.168.250.xxx and 192.168.251.xxx segments, I get a request timeout.
The routing table on the RV110W shows the gateway for 192.168.254.240 (the VPN IP address) as 0.0.0.0 and interface is WAN.What am I missing and how should I configure the RV110W so that I can access the other subnets through VPN?
I have configured PPTP Server on RV042, and created 3 accounts. I am able to connect from Windows PC without any problems.
In the router's logging utility, there doesn't appear to be any log entries indicating either successful or failed attempts to connect to PPTP server. The only access logs I see are for access to the router's configuration utility. Is there a way to view PPTP access in the router system log?
I have two offices connected with an IPSEC VPN tunnel using RV220W routers. The Tunnel works fine for local users between the two sites(Site 1:10.0.0.x; site 2 is 10.0.2.x). I have also set up PPTP users for remote access. PPTP users that connect to site 1 cannot access site 2 and vice versa. The PPTP users have no trouble accessing the resources on the site that they connect to. I have tried activating RIP and adding various static routes with no success. If I PPTP connect to site 1 and I tracert to an IP address on site 2 the route goes to the site 1 router and then goes to the internet(connected to the site 1 router) where it stops.
Currently i am having a scenario where i have setup RV042 and which is connected to Microsoft Forefront 2010. PPTP works fine only on rv042 subnet but i am not able to access the "internal" network of TMG.RV042 (172.16.1.1) ---> TMG [external] (172.16.1.2) ---> TMG [internal] (192.168.1.1) Is there any way through static route to access the TMG internal network through RV042 pptp server?
I'm having a Strange problem. When i try to Explorer files in a network location by typing \<Computer Name> it does not work, Network path not Found error appears. But i can browse files using IP Address.
1. This Happen only at this particular machine only. I can Explorer files using the Computer name from other machines. 2. nslookup shows the correct IP. 3. I can connect to the file server using Remote Desktop by typing the Computer Name.
I've got this problem about accessing a file server in my work office.
First, I used to have a desktop PC connected via ethernet cable to a wireless router (there's only one connection in this office but there are two of us, so we set up a router), and I was able to acces the file server by typing "\SERVERNAME" in the RUN command windows. I brought my laptop and I connected it to the router via wireless. After I tried accessing the server the same way I used to (typing "\SERVERNAME") but I got the "Windows cannot acces \servername". Well, I said, I'll try by connecting via ethernet cable, but I couldn't connect either. The only way I can access is by disconnecting the internet cable off the router and plugging it in my laptop's ethernet port. But the issue is that we've only got one connection and some other people connect wirelessly too. I can't understand why if connecting an ethernet cable to the router's LAN port, I was able to access the server from my desktop computer but when I tried the same way from my laptop I could not.Internet connection works fine in my laptop. Networks settings are ok i think. My laptop has Windows 7 and my desktop has Win XP.

The other is a Gateway w34OUI running XP Media Center. Both are in great condition for their ages. Good for them. I really want to network the two with an RJ45 crossover cable, and all the instructions I've found on our illustrious internet tell me it's easy. HOWEVER, when I've only begun to follow those instructions (one list is from the God Microsoft itself), NONE OF ANY of the sets of instructions matches the steps offered on either one of these notebooks. The options do not correspond. The results do not correspond. The closest I get is a window that says I do not have access to such file sharing. These are MY computers, and have always been, and I am attempting to network using administrator ID logins on BOTH. What's the REAL way to network only two notebooks with an RJ45 crossover cable?
I have to share some PDF files with members of my organization, I have a Windows XP Pro box dedicated for this. Currently they can access it from within the office as a shared folder. I would like to make it available remotely is there a better way other then as a FTP access.
I have enabled Network filtering on MAC address on my D-Link 628 router.
I've noticed entries in the log file - "Access Denied to LAN System with MAC address ______________" for 2 different MAC addresses. I do not recognize these MAC addresses. The entry that immediately follows these messages - "Above message repeated 466 times and 124 times. The entries for these 2 MAC addresses has been occurring multiple times with different repeat numbers over the past few days.
Is this an indication that someone nearby my router is attempting to hack into my wireless router or do I have a configuration issue?
I am a part of small IT company and I need to know if there's a good program I can get to control file access on the network.
Here is my scenario : 5 users on a network with their own workstations, IT Technicians, Sales and Marketing, Admin, HR and Manager...All these users need to access different files on the network so here is what I want, I need for the IT guy to log on into his PC and only see files that he needs on his account and the same thing should apply for other users on their accounts..They should only see files and folders that are relevant to them.
When I'm trying to access a computer within our network, I could not access it and this is the error message "\computer_name is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource.Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permission. There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request".
I'm having Local Area Network(LAN) with 10-15 client computers connected to three servers. And I've folder containing files in one of the servers which I can access and proceed my daily downloading and uploading activity.Due to Virus I've formatted some of the client computers and re-installed everything. Now the problem is I can get Ping Command request successfully but can't access that folder from the clients instead it's been asking for username and password. Also, that username and password is not working even if used it.
