    I read most of the your posting and it helped a lot. However I'm now able to create a VPN connection but can't map a network drive. Correct me if I'm wrong but when connected via VPN I'm not getting an IP address rom my internal network. It's as if I'm connected but not part of the network via IP. How can I get this function to work. I turned off my firewalls and made sure IPsec is enaled. I also followed Doc guide. Please help as I only have a few days before I can return it.
    THANK YOU in advance.

    Take another look at the share name for the folder you created and the permissions.

    If you assigned the share name as "linksys," then your mapping would be typed as shown (bogus ip used only to assist):


    To save time once you connect with quickvpn, you can also just go to start---> run---> and type \\; if it is the first time you connect to your share like this, it will ask you for a username and password that is recognized by the computer you want access to (this is where you define a domain user account if active directory is used or single computer account if you are using a workgroup); once you authenticate with the required username and password combination, all available shares should pop up. Added benefit is if you do this from that point on, you'll authenticate all the way through.
