Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I already found some information on this problem here, but I still can't get it to work.

Im trying to access some network resources on my server via vpn over the net. Im using a win7 home pc here and a win server 2008 rc2 with installed ras&routing role on the server.

For vpn authentication I use a local user on the server with vpn-access. This user also has the rights to access to the network resources, but it neither finds the server under network nor is it able to connect the network drives...

In similar topics here I found out that using the same credentials for vpn-authentication and network resources access does not work, but using different user for access didn't work either.

All of these examples I found were in an active directory structure, but I don't have an active directory here.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem without having to use an active directory?

Ok I hopefully got it to work now, have to test a bit, but it doesn't seem to be a problem of user authentication, -although I use two different users now-, it probably was caused by some wrong static routes...

Edit: it doesn't seem to work after the next restart of the client pc. The only way to get it to work again, is to force the routing and ras service on the server to restart...
