RV042 at two sites.. sharing issues

RV042 at two sites.. sharing issues

I have a RV042 at two sites.. everything works well but ran into a simple snag.
When a pc at site A wants to access a share on site B then we get "An error occured while reconnecting V: to \\pcname\share"...
Microsoft Windows Network: The local device name is already in use. This connection has not been restored

As soon as I run a network scanner it then allows for me to go back to the mapped network share and open the drive. Im guessing when opening a share it doesn't open the tunnel? Is there anyway to make sure the drive is accessable always without having to run the network scanner first?

RE: RV042 at two sites.. sharing issues

what operating system are you running on these computers?  Also, you want to make sure that your vpn tunnel is set to auto reconnect.   

RE: RV042 at two sites.. sharing issues

Is auto reconnect the "Keep-Alive" setting in the vpn settings?
