VPN questions

I successfully have two remote users connecting into my VPN on a W2K server.
I have 5 other Win 98 PCs on the internal physical network. They all share
an ISP connection through a DSL router to a modem and they're all behind the
firewall. Everything seems to be going fine except I'm having problems
connecting to my server folders at login from my office pc that rests on the
same network as the server. It happened after I installed the second nic on
the server. It seems I have to manually connect to the folers. I believe
it is a DNS or WINS issue, but I'm not sure how to fix it.

thanks,
Aaron

Putting a second NIC in a server (or enabling it for remote access) can
cause name resolution and browsing problems (especially on a DC). Make sure
that only the LAN NIC has Netbios over TCP/IP enabled. If you are using
DDNS, also check that only the LAN NIC is registering with DNS.

Well, I disabled Netbios and took it off the DNS registration but I still
cannot connect to the network folders. Any other suggestions?

What are the clients that work? W2k?

W9x machines depend heavily on Netbios names. Do the remote clients get
the correct WINS address? Can they ping LAN machines by IP and by name?

If you can ping by name, try mapping a share with a "net use " command.

On the Netbt matter, check that there are not any "wrong" entries left
behind in WINS.
