W2000Pro: Problem accessing network shares

W2000Pro: Problem accessing network shares

Post by Aaron Fo » Fri, 12 May 2000 04:00:00



Greetings,

I've browsed the group for about a week, and I didn't see a clear answer
to the problem.

I have a remote Win2K Pro workstation box that I'm attempting to connect
to the company network (NT 4.0 TCP/IP, no netware). I am able to dial up
to an external ISP logged on to my workstation. Then I VPN into the
company, with logging on through the company's domain. I am able to 'see'
computers on the corporate network through the "My Network Places" menu,
but cannot access them. I get a name/password is invalid dialog box.

The is listed as belonging to the corporate domain, and I am able to login
to the company network and access services (DNS queries go through with no
problems).

Am I missing something here? Only way I can get remote access like this
working is to log on to the computer (at the beginning) using a dial-up
connection to the company domain. This is kludgy at best. There's got to
be something simple I've overlooked in setting up the vpn

TCP/IP, Client for MS networks, File and Print Sharing are
installed. Computer is listed as belonging to the remote domain (network
identification).

Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'm only an end-user, but my
company's IT department is scratching their heads on this one ("Uh, I
don;t know what's wrong, dude, but try reinstalling your OS.....").

Thanks!

d.

Hi Aaron,
I found this post in Dejanews which may solve your problem:

Thanks for the tips, but neither resource appeared to work.

Changing a local user account to the same name/password (logging in on my
home computers' domain, hencforth refered to as Domain A), and then
attempting to VPN in still doesn't work. The VPN connects, and appears to
authenticate me as a remote user under the company domain (DOMIAN B), but
still won't grant me access to network resources.

The shares reside on differing machines (mostly NT 4.0 SP5 boxen, but one
is my work computer runing Win2000 Pro) in my workplace's domain (Domain
B). I'm wondering if, even though when the tunnel is established, I log in
under the network Domain (B), the network still thinks I belong to Domain
A?

Does anyone out there actually *have* a working network with this kind of
setup?

Thanks a million, all!

d.

I have a set up similar to what you are talking about.

Domain A is corporate network with NT 4.0 PDC & Servers

Workgroup B is at home consiting of various machines.

I log onto workgroup B with a Win2k machine using a username and password
that is valid in Domain A -- then connect via VPN to Domain A.  Access to
corporate workgroup is fine.

However, if I try and log on to Domain A at start up by selecting 'log on
via Dial-up Networking' and choosing the VPN it fails.  This works with NT
4.0.
