VPN issues - Accessing Map Network Drive

Sun Oct 14, 2018 2:06 am

Hi There,

I have a DHCP home network(192.168.4.0/24) along with VPN setup to get to my router remotely(192.168.10.10). I have no issues connecting to the router and also connecting to some of the devices internally by other protocols and I can also ping all devices when connected to the HomeLAN.

The issues are when connected to the VPN, I can ping almost all devices, except for the Windows NUC on the network and other windows devices.

I'm trying to access the shared drive remotely on this NUC(Accessible only at the moment via the local network), I have setup NAT-Rules(dstnat) on the 137-139 TCP ports that should allow this, but for some reason, I'm no able to access this remotely. Since, I'm not able to ping this device over VPN, don't know if this is all related.

Is there anything else that possibly need including on the setup?

I appreciate your help.

Regards,

Pipa

You shouldn't need any dstnat for this. If you use other subnet for VPN users (not the same as LAN), you need to check firewall on those Windows devices and allow access from VPN subnet, because by default, only access from local subnet is allowed.

Hi Sob,

Please correct me, if I'm wrong, do you mean something like this : "chain=input action=accept src-address=192.168.10.0/29 dst-address=192.168.4.0/24 in-interface= log=no log-prefix="

I appreciate your help.

Regards,

Pipa.

No, he means specifically check firewall setting on the windows host. Windows knows its a member of 192.168.4.0/24, so would only be allowing those services on 192.168.4.0/24, you need to allow 192.168.10.0/24 as well.
