OpenVPN point-to-point: cannot connect to server "network drive"



  • Point-to-point OpenVPN connection with some vlan in both server and client side.

    server side windows subnet: 192.168.1.0/24 (Windows server stay here)
    client side windows subnet: 192.168.2.0/24

    All seem to work, but from the client subnet I'm not able to connect to Windows mapped "network drive" set to server subnet path (if I use IP address all work great).

    I take a notebook commonly used in server subnet:

    IP: 192.168.1.10
    GW: 192.168.1.1
    DNS: 192.168.1.100

    and I put it in the client subnet without changing the DNS address:

    IP: 192.168.2.10
    GW: 192.168.2.1
    DNS: 192.168.1.100

    I'm expecting that DNS solve the "network drive" path with the correct IP server subnet address, so the notebook can open the related server folder. But this doesn't happen.

    May be I must to use PfSense DNS features to solve the problem?



  • May be that the reason of no answer is my bad English (so my question is not very clear)?  :-\

    is there on the Server side a AD/DC in usage? Did you create there then User accounts then?

    Yes, but if this is the problem I expect that Windows ask me username and password when I try to connect to the network drive (like happen when I use the IP address).
