Hello to everyone in the list, i have a IPCop firewall with vpn service 
running and just one roadwarrior (xp sp2 pc), everything is fine, but 
when the remote pc tries to connect (or just view) to the samba file 
server shares there is no accessible. The other clients of the lan are 
all visibles.
Is there any way to view and share the samba file server through the 
ipcop vpn or i need to setup a ssh tunnel..?

Thanks for reading this...

Slackware Linux

   * This distribution is for those that don't care for the overhead of configuration interfaces, and have a great appetite for raw text files. No need for dependency checks, since they always know what they are doing. Especially important to Slackware users are the bragging rights of using the oldest distribution still in development. Plus the fact that it has been supported by the same diety all that time, Patrick J. Volkerding. Newbies should be cautious around Slackware users, because they will cut you none.
