VPN access to remote folders

    Question

  • Hi, I've got a brand new HP desktop running XP Pro SP3.

    I've set up a VPN connection to a remote server which is fine as I can access folders on certain servers. One server will not allow me access and comes up with an error 'cannot connect to remote server'. It brings up the dialogue box for the username and password but once entered you get the error message.

    We've tried creating a new account on the remote server but you still get the error message.

    The users old machine will still connect using the original credentials (the same username and pasword we are trying to use on the new machine, ie I don't see that the credentials we are using are wrong).

    Any ideas much appreciated

    Thanks, Jo
