RV042 - VPN Tunnel Question

I have two small sites (remote site and local site), both with RV042 routers. I have created a VPN tunnel and have connected both sites. From the remote site I can browse to my local site server shares, but from the local site I can not connect to any windows shares on the remote site. I can ping the computers at the remote site, but network shares are not found. I setup forwarding to the specific IP Address, but still can not connect to the share. Can you tell me what else I am missing? I have added the IP to my local host file, but still can not see share.

Hi,

So you can PING the server, but not do a network share for instance?

Can you connect to the server via any other protocol, for example Remote Desktop or any other application?

I assume there are not any filters on the RV042s for the VPN tunnel correct?

Re: RV042 - VPN Tunnel Question

I can ping the workstation, and I can establish a RDP connection to that IP as well. When I attempt to access the shares though, I get network path not found. Also a net view of that workstation fails. There are no filters like you mentioned. I just wondering if I had to do port forwarding for Microsoft Shares? Or something else?

Re: RV042 - VPN Tunnel Question

Can you access the shares via IP?

If the shares are failing when using names, could be NetBIOS not passing through the tunnel.

I tried both by name , and by IP , neither one seem to work.

Re: RV042 - VPN Tunnel Question

Things to check:
Try changing the MTU and set it to 1300
Any software firewall on the machine itself?
Can you try mapping the drive using Windows Explorer-Tools-Map Network Drive and select the drive letter?
