I have a WRV54G and, miraculously, I am able to make stable VPN connections to it using either The Green Bow or Linksys Quick VPN. I am attempting to allow inbound VPN connections to my home workgroup for many reasons ranging from LAN games to listening to my MP3 collection at home from work. I am able to ping all of my LAN devices (that have their firewall turned off) from the PC connected via the VPN client. I have also changed the workgroup of the VPN Client PC to that of my LAN workgroup. For some reason, however, I have no access to any of my workgroup resources. The VPN Client PC does not show up as a workgroup computer on the LAN, nor do any of the LAN machines show up as worgroup computers on the VPN Client PC. This is the most frustrating thing ever. I've got a VPN connection, but I can't do anything with it. I thought the whole purpose of a VPN connection was to 'spoof' the fact that you are connected to a LAN, though you are distant. What am I doing wrong? Should I be able to ping the VPN Client PC from the LAN machines...and if so, what IP address would the LAN see the VPN Client PC as? (The LAN network is 10.75.8.1/255.255.255.0 and assigns IP addresses to my LAN machines starting at 10.75.8.100.) Help!!!
