Hi, i was wondering if anyone could help with an issue i have in sharing 3 databases over VPN. i have three offices each with 2-6 workstations all running XP Pro SP2, they are all connected using draytek 2600plus adsl routers and seem to be fine most of the time but every so often one of the databases cannot be accessed by the other two locations, although the other two can still be accessed by the disfunctional computer. it can vary which network the issue resides on. in order to deal with this i edited the host files on all the computers and manually set the ips. i have also removed or disabled any firewalls and regardless of which machine goes down i can always ping all the other machines by IP. there are no servers running WINS all three networks are peer to peer and in their workgroups
this has been a head scratcher for sometime and any and all help is appreciated in adavance.
