Yes, I get that same result. And a Net Use shows nothing in use--the open
via explorer of the folder structure doesn't show up. Using the credentials
under which I made the VPN connection makes no difference.
I'd recommend using standard admin tools over the vpn.
For example, right-click My computer, choose manage.
Action, connect to another computer
I can connect to an NT4 server by IP address, and the same operation I
attempted results in that same challenge, but this time, the credentials
given go through just fine.
