    Hello all:

    My problem is as follows: I can connect to the network using VPN I see the entire network. I can browse the domain controllers (two of them) but I cannot access the other servers. I got two different types of errors:

    1- “servername” not accessible, network path was not found. This error also occurs when browsing the network, click on a domain controller then click the back button to go back to the network.

    2- “servername” access denied. I only got this message once. It said something like “the user has no logon wrights”

    I can ping the entire network from the VPN client

    Any ideas

    Try accessing the resources via IP adderss instead of by name. If you can do it that way you have a NetBIOS issue.

    Do you have rights on those other servers?

    Also, try adding the IP address and server name to your hosts and lmhosts files. Then you and connect to the server by name.

    i tryed the host and lmhost files. same result cannot access the servers.

    There 4 servers on my network. From the internal network i can access all the servers. From the VPN i can only access the Domain Controlers (two).

    The first part of the response was whether you have any rights on the servers. You should be logging in with the same username and password as is allows on the servers.
