    Question vpn access to network shares
    Hello and thank-you for reading this post.

    I have a home office with computers running osx lion and osx mt. lion. I also have a NAS and I currently VPN into the network with a TP-Link router from an osx mt. lion mac book pro.

    What I would like to do is migrate the data off of the RAIDed NAS and onto the computers (which are being backed up over the air to a timecapsule) so that I can simply the setup by just accessing shared folders on the computers and then use the NAS for off-site backup.

    Is this possible? Currently when I vpn into the network I can not seem to connect to shared folders. What do I need to do to see the shares?

    Bests

    Yes, the router is acting as a VPN server and it's a PPTP connection.
