comment Lock Screen / Screen Saver
@theStandard Strange! It worked for me with the example above using bubbles.scr. It shows the screensaver first, then when I had keyboard/mouse input, it cancelled screensaver and locked the screen. AutoHotKey is powerful stuff, I'm sure there's a small tweak you can make to it to make it work.

It's been a while, and it hasn't happened, so I'll mark this complete.

comment Cannot browse VPN files by IP
Found the problem. Apparently I named this new PC, the exact same name as my old one. The IPs are different, but the duplicate name was not happy. Wow, this was a weird one. End goal, it's working!

@NewProgrammerJames Yeah, I have it setup as a /32 as I only need to access the 1 device on the network. The strange thing is, this exact setup is working (with the split networking). I wonder if I should delete this VPN adapter, and start fresh. I must be missing a checkbox or something.

@NewProgrammerJames Yep, the drive is shared. It is not looking for credentials. Sharing security is Everyone can change files. It was working on Client B, but only for a few minutes. Now I cannot get it to show up again.

@NewProgrammerJames Good point, I tried that and it still fails. It's not a hidden share (which the $ usually means), and I don't have to do that on "Client A" which is the working one.

The VPN "server" is really a Windows XP device (yeah; I know.) - As part of my testing, I disabled the firewall there, and there was no change in the behavior above. Client A works, whereas this Client B is not working (in the same environment; side-by-side).
