VPN SMB share access

Post by jakubokaj » Thu Jul 04, 2019 8:54 am

Hello,

I've just start using this software.
First my impression is ok but I have a problem.
I can make connection from standard windows client to default hub without any problems.
I have access to shares on windows network (domain) on every servers but not on the server on which is softether bridge installed ;(
What could be wrong?

Are you using SecureNAT or Local Bridge? Is the Server that is running the SE server a Virtual Machine or physical hardware?

Hello,
I use localbridge.
The server is runing on physical hardware.
I have no problem with access to devices on network but I have a problem with access to resources on that server where is installed.
We have windows domain and we have shared resources on that machine but I remember that I have no ping or remote desktop also.

There are others who also have this issue when using the same NIC card for the VPN and Local bridge. The preferred local bridge method is to use 2 NICs. 1 for the VPN and the other for the Local bridge and remove the protocol stacks.
See the links below:

I personally have servers that use 2 NICS and I have other servers running 1 NIC. I have never had and an issue with RDP or accessing the shares using a single NIC
