Hello,

hopefully someone can shed some light on this dilemma I am having. First off I have successfully set this up for another employee at my work with the same router, and have successfully mapped to the server drives.

But for some reason on my home computer, I cannot, I am connect through a VPN Router to Router connection, which states it is successfully connected, which is great, but when I go to map the drives I need to network to, it does not find the network path.

Is there something that I may not have configured properly on my end? I have all the permissions correct on the server side.

Thanks for your time.

I am running a router to router connection, using a Linksys BEFSX41 for my home router, and a BEFVP41 as the server router.

The routers state they are connected. No problems there.

Just keep getting denied on the mapping of the drives. I am operating on a clean boot of xp pro, which is what was done with the other employee that I helped set this up for, hers worked perfectly from the first time we mapped the drives.

I am totally lost here.

I went to the chicagotech site (thank you by the way) pinged the server and received the packets back with no problems.

Even had my ISP remove NAT, and bridge my modem, but still nothing.

I have also tried disabling my firewalls, and still no luck.

Help! and thanks.
