VPN and Microsoft DFS

Unanswered Question
Sep 21st, 2007


I put in an ASA 5510 with client to site VPN. Unfortunately, we are now unable to access the DFS share we created. Is there something that needed to be done? We can access all of our other resources.

Thank you,

Joel Friedman

I have this problem too.

I am having the same problem using a WebVPN with our ASA5510. We can reference files by \\server-name or \\share-name but using \\DFS-name fails with a timeout message. We can see the file but when you try to downloading it fails (transmits a zero byte file).

With a little help, I entered the following on my ASA and it seemed to fix my problem:

crypto ipsec df-bit clear-df outside

Hope that helps,

Thanks for the comment but unfortunatly it does not work for WebVPN clients.
