Can't Connect To Local Share Computer

Post by twisted5000 » Wed Nov 24, 2021 2:38 pm

Hello, So I'm using OpenVPN through a router. I have a shared drive on a local computer. When I try to connect through the remote computer it fails to connect. I've tried the hostname and IP address and both fail. What might the issue be? I can see other computer, but not one that can be seen inside the LAN.

Hi Chad,

It might be due to the way the server is configured. The router, is it the server, or a client of something else? What kind of router?
