hi im new to mac and have just bought new MB pro. using it at home but need to log onto my work windows computer to access and backup work files. ive downloaded ipsecuritas and have successfully managed to vpn to my work network thru the netgear vpn router (fvs338). i can tell the vpn login has been successful because i can then use remote desktop on the mac to see the computer i need to access by just entering the local work network ip address of that computer (10.0.0.30). also if i plug in the local ip address of my fax machine in firefox i successfully go to the settings screen. also i can ping the 10.0.0.30 computer successfully too. problem is i cant log onto the 10.0.0.30 computer via finder which is what i need to do so i can ultimately use some type of sync software to backup my data and get access to files from home. have spent all night trying to sort out how to log on with no success. my mac user name and password are identical to user name and password of work computer. and under system preference, network, airport, advanced, wins, ive changed the workgroup to the same as my work windows network workgroup name. then i go to finder, go, connect to server, plug in smb://(work computer ip address/shared folder name and press connect ..... and nothing... can anyone help with some detailed info on how to solve this???
