I admit that I'm not at all familiar with much of what I am trying to do, but I've come this far already using this guide. I've successfully connected a client to my toastman flashed WRT54GL router. Now I'm trying to connect to a shared folder on the server side. I can log into the router serving the vpn from the client & I can ping the address of the PC which is sharing the folder on the server side, but have failed to get into the desired folder. I've tried following all the tips I've been able to find, but now my head is spinning. If there is a better way to do this, I'm open for the suggestion. I have another WRT54GL router on the client side that can be flashed with the same toastman firmware if necessary. I had the notion that using a "road warrior" type of setup would allow the users on the client side to use their own network most of the time, while only connecting to the vpn when necessary. I assume this would be better than having them start/stop the service from the tomato administration. As of now connecting/disconnecting with the OpenVPN client software is simple enough, so all I need at them moment is to be able to map a folder so they can access it once connected. Am I in the right ballpark with this assumption? I would also like to have this setup with the best possible speed & performance in mind. Any help I can bribe from you guys will be met with my complete & unwavering appreciation and awe, not to mention some donations when I'm blessed with adequate coin as a result of my efforts. Cheers.
