    Question Cant access certain Windows 2008 R2 servers over VPN from XP clients

    We have been using a VPN connection to our 2003 based network fine for several years now, however now I have introduced 3 Windows 2008 R2 servers I have run into a weird problem.

    XP clients are unable to ping/browse two of our 2008 servers over the VPN connection, however they can ping/browse another 2008 server just fine. All these servers reside on the same VMware server.

    Windows 7 clients can however see all the servers over the VPN with no problems. I have tried disabling the firewall on the servers but this makes no difference.

    Does any one have any clues?

    Have you disabled all 3 server profiles?

    What type of VPN are you using?

    When you ping them are you pinging the IP address or the DNS name?

    Thanks

    Yes they are applied with GP's and I checked after to make sure they were off.
    The servers cannot be pinged by ip or netbios name

    I dont think the VPN is the problem as I can access only servers ok.
