Hi,
I am able to connect via VPN using RSA securid. When I try to connect to a share either by using the name or by IP address I get a connection failed.I open finder and click go and connect to server. TYPE SMB://xx.xx.xxx.xx/sharename or SMB://servername/sharename it doesn't matter. I get a Connection Failed message after a couple of minutes. What do I need to do to get this fixed? NEWBIE on MAC!

QUOTE Thanks

can you ping either the IP or hostname? If you can can you telnet to port 445 on it? (telnet <hostname or IP> 445) to break that hit ctrll-] then type close

no. the ping just hangs. it's weird. I am connecting to a website on firefox and passing it credentials on the website with the RSA securid number. Not sure what am I doing wrong.

Sounds like your VPN is either not connected successfully, or there are configuration issues with it on the host side (vpn server)
