  1. guys i got linksys vpn router at work. i got sentinel at home. i got connection to office vpn router successfully, i can access printer at work through vpn but cant access XP Pro computer which is at work.

    I can ping to XP computer though VPN but cant access shared resources on it.

    I can only access resources on office XP computer if i turn off its firewall.

    Can anyone tell me what ports or anything else i can allow on XP firewall to gain access to those resources without turning whole firewall OFF.

    this can be dependent upon the vendor AND your installed configuration,
    both at home and the office.

    a place to start looking is here

    you need to add the ip address to firewall settings
