I use a VPN to access certain resources for a client at work. This works fine when I'm at my office, but at home is a different story. When at home, I can connect via VPN and access any of our internal web applications and any network shares that are already set up.
However, if I try to establish a new connection to a named server, via SQL Server Management Studio, Remote Desktop, or a new network share, it cannot find the server.
I have had success plugging my laptop directly into the cable modem, but obviously this is less than optimal. My router is a D-Link Gamerlounge (DGL-4500). I have tried putting my laptop on the DMZ and plugging directly into the router. Neither option worked.
I'd appreciate any ideas on where to go from here.
