Connected to Server, but Unable to Access Shared Network Folders

Posted: Mon Jun 21, 2021 3:52 pm
I have been dealing with this issue for a few months now. I am not well rounded with IOT or VPN trouble shooting so my terminology may be incorrect. Since I started my new position I have tried to work remotely and access the share folders on my office wifi. I am able to connect but I am not able to access out 2 shared network folders. I do get a few errors on start-up of the VPN which may be the cause, but I am not entirely sure. I'll paste them below. When following the cypher instruction prompted by the command window, I am not able to make changes to the client file since I am not the admin/owner of the file.
