Cannot talk to mac services through IPSEC vpn


J

I I am VPN'ed and I can ping the server, and see the web server, but I
can not access the mac file shares using afp/smb with the ip address or
the name, it always times out. I have tried it without anything also.
I can see every other machine on the network as well, but I can't
connect to the mac services.

Any Ideas?
Thanks
James

AFP uses port 548. Is this blocked within your company's VPN networking?

Can you ping the server from the Mac? Do you know if Windows clients can
access the server via vpn? It seems unlikely that this is a Mac services
issue alone if SMB connections are failing as well. While AFP connections
would be blocked if 548 is blocked as William suggests SMB connections would
not be blocked. A snippet of an SMB related KB and the link follow:

"The following ports are associated with file sharing and server message
block (SMB) communications: . Microsoft file sharing SMB: User Datagram
Protocol (UDP) ports from 135 through 139 and Transmission Control Protocol
(TCP) ports from 135 through 139.
. Direct-hosted SMB traffic without a network basic input/output
system (NetBIOS): port 445 (TCP and UPD)."
