I have a MacBook Pro with OS x10.67. This week I have just installed VMware Fusion 4 (30 day trial) and windows 7. The system works great and allows me to use Outlook 2007 and communicate with our exchange server 2003.

When I am away from the office I connect using a Cisco VPN through Windows, but I am having trouble connecting to my server through the windows VPN when using finder. I'd like to be able to access my files on the server (shared drive) from the Mac desktop.

Any ideas on how to set this up would be appreciated.
