Hi all,

I'm new to this, so I please forgive me for lack of knowledge.

I have two draytex's setup for a vpn using pptp one is a 2600V the other a 2600 plus, which is up and running. However the link drops every 5mins, I have read this happens in default but can be worked around if you set one side from 300ms to 0 and the other to -1, done this and it works.

Is there away around the vpn dropping in the first place ?

Next problem I'm having is.

There is no domain on either site, just a workgroup called Office on both sides, Site 192.168.0.x the other 192.168.1.x. All pcs on site A can access a shared folder on a pc on site A, however none of the pcs at Site B can access the folder.

Any help here gratefully recieved.

RE: Please help !

Just check vpn status, it has been up now just over a hour.

RE: Please help !

Just to be sure, you know that NetBIOS names do not propagate over the VPN, right?

If \\mylittleserver\myfiles\ is at IP address then \\\myfiles\ should work (slowly)

Or you can manually enter mtlittleserver in the hosts file and then \\mylittleserver\myfiles\ will work

I tried to remain child-like, all I acheived was childish.
