J

Here is my setup.
Netgear vpn router at home. Using vpn client software on Windows xp
sp2 to access and establish the vpn router. Connection is successful
and I can ping all the machines on the other side of the router. I can
access share on windows xp machines, windows 2000 server machine but I
cannot access shares on any vista machines. Connection attempt times
out. The shares are there and can be accessed locally.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!

Can you ping the Vista by IP? If not, check the firewall settings first.

Yes, I can ping it. I can RDP to it via the vpn. I can see the shares
locally on the LAN but I cannot see the shares through the vpn.

I finally found a solution. I had to change this setting in the
registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa
\LMCompatibilityLevel
I changed it from the default 3 to 1. This solved it.

Spoke too soon. For some reason this worked for a while then stopped.
I can access shares on any XP, 2000 machine but not on any Vista
machines.
This is very frustrating. Any ideas on this would be greatly
appreciated!
