dear users,

i discovered a strange behavior with shrewsoft vpn client and windows 
file && printer shares.

the directories and printers shared by windows hosts can not be used 
correctly. if i use smbclient -L \\ip-address-of-windows-host from a 
client, within the lan i want to access, i directly get a connection 

in my first setup i used the lancom vpn client connected to our 
vpn-gateway whereby i can access the shares and printers without problems.

any ideas to work this problem out? it must have something to do with 
the shrew client.

regards from germany
