I have two laptops, one an XP machine, and one a newer Windows 7 64 bit machine. On both I have Visual Studio 2008 Team System installed, same service packs.
When I work from home I can connect to our office network over the VPN from both machines, and ping the Team Foundation Server machine from both. However I can only connect Visual Studio to TFS from my older XP machine. On the Win7 machine VS 'cannot find' the TFS server.
I am at a loss to know what to do to resolve this. Can anyone advise? It does not seem to be a port/firewall issue because my home router is common, and the VPN is common, so I suspect that TFS or my Win7 laptop have to have something set up to allow the connection - but what? Does TFS for example need to be told that my Win7 laptop will connect remotely or something?
I do not have a happy band of network administrators to assist - I am all on my own on this one, and I have to find a resolution.
