Access to other workgroup over VPN conections

  • Hello i have a question
    Have sth like that in my network

    LAN1 –----pfsense1 -------(VPN)---------pfsense2 ------LAN2

    May i see computers in workgroup in my LAN1 from LAN2?
    4 example to sharing files.

  • No.
    workgroups are based on UDP broadcasts.
    Broadcasts wont go over a router.

    But you can access windows shares directly via the IP.

    So while you cannot access a workgroup, yes you can access windows-shares.
