Re: Map drives across VPN fails
I have the same problem here. When I try to access shares on my Win2003
server from Vista Ultimate, it timeouts and says that the network path could
not be found (0x80070035). According to netstat it's waiting a SYN reply
from the netbios-ssn service on the server.
I've tried disabling WebClient as you said, and now the error changed to
0x800704b3 (The network path was either typed incorrectly, does not exist,
or the network provider is not currently available).
