We have a RV082 with 3 switches. I need to get a computer on VLAN2 to be able to file share with a computer on VLAN1. Both VLAN's are on different switches. I am not a networking guru but can follow instructions if somebody can help. I read in the online manual that VLAN's cannot talk to each other. The computer in question was put into the same workgroup as all the other computers in VLAN1. I can see the computers in Network Neighborhood from the computer on the VLAN2 switch but can't access the shared resource. Is there anything I can do? I know I have the permissions setup correctly on the server. We are using Win2003R2. 1 of the switches is a Linksys, 1 is a Netgear and the other is a 3Com. Any more information needed I will gladly supply it if anybody can help me with this. The boss is getting anxious to get this file shared. Thank you.

Just a thought. In case you have $160 to spare, it might be a good idea to get a RVL200, which can provide 802.1Q VLAN and 5 SSL VPN tunnels. The attached topology shows how they can work together - picture is from RVL200 user guide.
Are you using Dual-WAN load balancing on RV082?
If not, you could consider putting the server that needs to be shared by multiple VLANs in the DMZ Zone using the DMZ/WAN Port.
RV082 does not support inter-VLAN routing, like RVL200 or RVS4000 does.
