Shared folders on XP/Windows Server 2003 via VPN from Vista
Vista has been working great for me with one major problem:

I have a remote machine running WS2003, and have R&RA configured to allow
dial-in VPN connections. DHCP is configured for all dial-in IP/DNS/WINS IP
allocation.

Using the windows XP VPN client I can connect fine to the server. I can also
browse the servers shares and (granted permissions) browse the contents of
shared folders.

Using the vista VPN client I can also connect fine. I can ping each machine
from the end of the tunnel. I cannot access shared folders though, nor browse
the shares of either machine.

I found a promising update from Microsoft: KB930163. This explained that a
possible cause of the problem is the incorrect metric of the route to the VPN
server. However this update did not resolve the problem.

As far as I can see, the only difference of the basic configurable
properties of the VPN connection on the Vista machine vs XP is the 'automatic
metric' option in advanced tcp/ip settings. Should this be set manually? My
concern is that the metric status may be causing the problem - and I'm not
entirely confident changing that setting.

Any help will be gratefully appreciated.

I have included a grab of netstat -r for reference (please note 63.63.63.63
is fictional!)

Re: Shared folders on XP/Windows Server 2003 via VPN from Vista
Doesn't seem the routing is issue here because you can ping it. Try to disable IPv6. Please post back with the result.

Re: Shared folders on XP/Windows Server 2003 via VPN from Vista
I have tried disabling IPV6 from the VPN connection to find no noticable
affect: i can still not browse shares. I have not tried disabling IPV6
altogether in Vista - is that what you mean?

Re: Shared folders on XP/Windows Server 2003 via VPN from Vista
We found, sometimes, the IPv6 of Vista VPN connection might cause the problem to share. Please also try to disable IPv6 in the LAN to see what happens.

Re: Shared folders on XP/Windows Server 2003 via VPN from Vista
What error do you get? Is it 'Logon failure: Unknown username or password'?
If so, can you try accessing the shares with the full FQDN name of the
machine?

Do let me know what happens.

Re: Shared folders on XP/Windows Server 2003 via VPN from Vista
Having NOT disabled IPV6 on the LAN (but it is disabled for the VPN
connection):
C:\Users\Richard>net view \\10.116.116.1
System error 53 has occurred.
The network path was not found.

AND:

C:\Users\Richard>net view \\front.local
System error 53 has occurred.
The network path was not found.

It appears not to be an authentication problem.

Thank you for your response.

Re: Shared folders on XP/Windows Server 2003 via VPN from Vista
I have disabled IPV6 from all network connections. There has not resolved the
problem. Is there a method to completely disable the IPV6 layer of the TCP/IP
stack in Vista?

FWIW I have also tried disabling the firewall on the VPN server, which has
not helped. Also, I CAN access an FTP server on the VPN server over the VPN,
so the problem is definitely not a routing one.

So far no clues...

All help has been gratefully received. Thank you.

Re: Shared folders on XP/Windows Server 2003 via VPN from Vista
I have not made any progress in resolving this problem.

This is a major limitation of the VPN functionality of Vista - come on
Microsoft: what's going on?

Re: Shared folders on XP/Windows Server 2003 via VPN from Vista
Hi Richard,
Did you check if NetBIOS over TCP/IP is enabled on the source (Vista)
and destination machines? This is absolutely necessary for shares access to
work.

thanks
Aanand

Re: Shared folders on XP/Windows Server 2003 via VPN from Vista
Thanks for your response Aanand. I have checked and netbios is enabled on the
vista client, and on the w2k3 server. Browsing shared folders works fine on
my many other XP machines.

Is NetBIOS not only for name resolution though? I have tried accessing the
shares on the server using an IP address and that does not work either.
