Currently Being ModeratedJul 23, 2007 2:03 PM (in response to James Rothschild)You mention a VPN connection is this via the routers or are you creating a client to server connection.
What IP range do you have at both ends and subnets ?MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.5)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 24, 2007 12:55 AM (in response to Lee McMurtry)Hi Lee,
The VPN is over 8MB broadband connections at each end and the Netgear Routers are set to pass straight on to the servers IP numbers as DMZ, so there is no firewall issues with the Routers.
I have tried two IP Range settings:
My Network: 192.168.1.x - Their Network: 192.168.1.x (this is bad)
My Network: 192.168.1.x - Their Network: 192.168.0.x
I can connect to others Macs & PC's by' Go - Connect to Server...' but not via. TCP/ Appletalk, ARD or to Printers with the Printer Setup Utility.
Ideas? Thank you...All of them, Mac OS X (10.4.8), Some PC's too, forgive me please!...

If it is you only get the "upstream" speed for the VPN.
If the servers are at the LAN "DMZ" IP you need the OS X firewall running or all server services are reachable from Internet.
But I would use portforwarding instead, not "DMZ".
Both 192.168.0.0/24 and 192.168.1.0/24 are bad choices if you want to get at them from behind a home NAT router with a default LAN config.
All remote sites should have a different LAN IP-range.
If the servers haven't got their firewall running you could try enabling ipforwarding manually under NAT config in SA.
But you say you can mount the remote machines shared folders?
VPN routing definitions?
AppleTalk ins't routed over the VPN nor is Bonjour.
IPP, LPR or RAW should work to print if printer/queue supports it.
ARD/VNC should work if you have a VNC server running in the remote computer. Windows XP pro have RDP built-in and there is a RDC client for OS X.
