Win 2k8 shared files inaccessible from win 7 through VPN RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have Win 2008 file server. Shares from this server are accessible via VPN from XP machines but inaccessible from Win 7 machines.

    This file server was recently upgraded from win 2003 to win 2008.

    No error codes are generated or no related events found.

    Any idea?

  • Hi Hiren,

    It might be DNS issues. Alternative are you able to map the share drive using ip address instead of hostname ?

    Because windows 7 and windows xp uses different NTLM authentication method.
