    Cannot access SMB shares via Windows VPN


    Hi,

    I have set up a VPN on my server at home. I am not using a domain.
    I can ping IP's on the network I am connected to and access things like my router using a local IP address.

    I can't however access any of my mapped drives.
    I've tried allowing all SMB rules in windows firewall

    Help appreciated

    Thanks

    What are you using to do the VPN handling? You should not need to share files, if you are directly accessing the machine. If you want to use FTP to access those folders only for FTP, you have to set them up that way.

    Same for me with Android device and Raspberry Pi. Without vpn no problem with SMB, with vpn no access to Pi.
    Curious whether a solution exists.

    There is. You have to map the folders for VPN, depending on what you are using for VPN.
