I have a local machine (Win7) which I am attempting to connect via VPN to my work machine (Also Win7)
My work machine is behind a firewall in which I have punched a suitable hole.
To a point this appears to be working pretty well.
I have successfully pinged one of our servers (Win2003) at work and have performed a git fetch and git pull against it.
I have likewise been able ping a colleagues machine (Win7)
However, I do not appear to be able to converse with the machine to which I Am actually connecting.
I Cannot ping, not navigate the file system via explorer. It's like the machine is denying it's own existence, Although I am very definitly connecting to my work machine in order to establish the initial connection.
Can someone suggest why I cannot communicate directly with my work machine?
