I have a Draytek 2820n modem/router set up to accept VPN connections. I have three PC's at home connected to this router. I also have a laptop that I connect wirelessly to it. All are working fine with 100% connections.
Now I want to be able to use the laptop remotely and access my drives when I am away from home. I set the Draytek up to accept VPN connections.
I am using the Draytek SmartVPN Client on the laptop. I took the laptop to my sisters place and connected wirelessly to the internet. All fine so far. I then created a VPN connection to my home router using PPTP and it connected fine and is showing up in the Network control panel. I then tried pinging my PC's at home and all three responded to the pings.
The problem is connecting to the drives. It just will not allow any connections to the drives at all. I even used net use z: \\pcname\e
and net use z: \\192.168.0.7\e
and it just timed out.
Looking at the properties it says it does not have internet access but there seems no way to enable this.
Any help appreciated for a much frustrated person
