I've got problem with mapping network drive when I'm connected to VPN(use OpenVPN).

I get this error:

System error 1231 has occurred.
The network location cannot be reached. For information about network troubleshooting, see Windows Help.

I'm a newbie in this, so I don't know how to fix it. Can someone help me with that ?

P.S.: Don't know exactly which informations should I mention.

  • Are you trying to connect your mapped drive by the server name or it's IP? E.g. \\server_name\myfolder instead of \\server_IP\myfolder - this can often happen if DNS hasn't been configured through your OpenVN config

  • @BigChris \\ip_address\folder

  • DNS has been configured in network center
