Hi all, I have issue regarding File access when i connect to my home network from outisde using VPN. Here is what i have done. 1. I have created incoming VPN in my window 7 Home basis laptop. 2. I have open 1723 port for TCP & UDP through window 7 firewall. 3. My window7 home basis laptop is connected to wireless router ( Beetel 450TC1 ADSL2+ Router ). 4. I have forwared port 1723 in beetel router to my window 7 home basis laptop ( say ip 192.168.1.3) 5. As my ISP is proving me dynamic ip , i have installed DynDNS updater in my window 7 home basis laptop to catch my changing ip address. so i will beusing myname.dyndns.org as server name in my client laptop. 6.I have created new connection in other XP home laptop to connects to my vpn server on (window 7 home basis laptop) from outside my home network. 8.XP home laptop uses TATA POTON dongle for internet. When i connects to VPN from outside , i am able to connect. My Window 7 home basis laptop shows 1 incoming connection and 1 user connected . My problem starts now... When i go to run and type the computer name say //Sony-Vaio , i am not able to see the shared folders of my window7 home basis laptop though i have given permission to the user connected to vpn. When i turn off the window firewall on both my window xp ( client ) and Window 7 home basis ( Server) laptops , then i am able to see the shared folder and have access to them. So i feel that there is some problem relatred to my window firewall on both laptops. Can you all please help me out so that i can connects to vpn and have access to shared folders when firewall on both laptops is on. Which are the ports need to be open on window x home and window 7 home firewalls? Please guide.
