    hello 8)

    just setup our new firewall, firebox X and VPN.

    we cant see other computers or file shares, when we browse network places in xp pro.

    i have joined the client to the local domain and i can ping all internal servers when connected over the VPN.

    thanks for your help. :)

    can you get to the file-shares using their IP? (ie using \\10.10.1.11 instead of \\server1).

    At my old work we had a problem with VPN we referred to as the 15 minute rule. In a lot of cases, for the first 15 minutes after logging in via VPN, you couldnt access anything by name, only by IP. After about 15 minutes, it resolves itself and everything works fine.

    Then Im afraid I have no idea. VPN was never my strong point at my old work - i was in a different dept, thats about all I can recall from my ServiceDesk days.

    Quick thought, you arent trying to enter that into the browser are you? you should be using run to test my suggestion. You likely are, but just thought Id make sure.

    Can you give us more info on the network setup?

    Is the VPN joining two sites together? Is the DC on a different subnet\location than the PC?

    can you try, start->run->type "cmd" & hit enter->type "net view \\servers_ip".

    any errors or did it list the servers shares?

    What about using Ipconfig/all in the Command window?

    Do you see a ip address or connection?8)

    Just to confirm, are the users dialing in directly to the server or are they dialing up and then launching a seperate VPN client?

    When connected can you ping the domain controller by IP address?
