I need to map a network drive over VPN. The server is running Windows Vista Business 64-bit and the client runs Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit.
The computers are on two different networks. Windows firewall is enabled with the relevant rules to allow File and Printer sharing. Everything works fine over the regular network but fails when trying to go through VPN. I know the VPN works because I can ping the server using the VPN assigned ip address and I remote desktop through it as well.
I've tried mapping the drive both through Explorer and the
net use command.
net use \\172.16.1.1\C /user:name@domain net use \\172.16.1.1\C /user:name@IP_ADDRESS net use \\172.16.1.1\C /user:domain/name
I either get the error saying
The network path was not found or
There are no logon servers available to service the logon request.
The event log on the server shows that
A logon was attempted using explicit credentials. but from the regular network ip address as opposed to the VPN address.
EDIT: Neither computer is a member of a domain and both are in the same default work group (WORKGROUP).
