how to map network drive with Cisco systems VPN Client, Vista
I'd like to ask for help with Vista 32, mapping a vpn network drive. I can
successfully connect to work with Cisco Systems VPN client, but do not see
any work network drives. (I can see these using a computer with XP, same
client) I have tried entering the work network drive info, (i.e.,
\\mot1fp02\Share$) using Map Network Drive, but get the diagnostic reply
"Windows sent the request to the DNS server and the server responded that the
name was unknown." I suspect, but don't really know, that the message is
referring to my IP DNS server, instead of my work DNS server?? Can you help?
