Unable to access SharePoint via VPN when using a home computer but ok when using work laptop

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

I have posted about this issue before regarding accessing SharePoint via VPN from a home computer and someone suggested that the issue might be with VPN or network. The strange thing is that I am able to access SharePoint via VPN from work laptop, but when I connect to VPN from my personal laptop and try to access SharePoint I get the message "Internet Explorer cannot display this webpage". Also, if I try to access the SharePoint site using the IP address of the server, I get a login windows and I login using domain\username and my password and I get page "Oops! Internet Explorer could not find ibsharept".

From my home laptop I am able to ping the server using the IP address but not using the server name, while from work laptop at home via VPN I am able to ping server using both IP and name.

I am the Admin and I am not able to figure out the problem. I am not sure if the issue with trust or network or something else since I am able to access it from work laptop when at home via VPN.

I really appreciate if someone can assist in this matter.

Access Denied while using Sharepoint designer 2007 to create a work flow

I am using Sharepoint Designer 2007 to create a work flow that sends emails to different people in a group depending on status of a record. For example, when some one reports a problem, an email is posted to concerned person and as soon as he/she checks the problem and updates the status an email is sent to next department and so on. Starting the work flow creation wizard is no problem but as soon as I press 'Finish' to create workflow I get 'Access Denied' message box. Any Ideas? I am using WSS 3.0 on 2003 Server.

Report Builder 3.0 unable to access SharePoint Foundation 2010 Report Server


I am having a terrrible time getting this to work. I have configured the SharePoint site and the SQL Servers involved to use Kerberos. That has been confirmed working.

I then configured the SharePoint site's Reporting Services integration (trusted account), enabled anonymous access and enabled report builder. I can launch report builder without any issues at all. The problem comes when I try to save my report. When Report Builder is started Items->New-ReportBuilder Report it opens and display in the lower left hand corner "No current report server." When I close the Wizard dialog and click connect I enter http://server.fqdn.net and I receive the following error:

Connection failed:

Unable to connect to the server that is specified in the URL, 'http://servername.fqdn.net/'.

Make sure that the server is running, the URL is correct, and you have permission to use the server.

I have also tried http://servername.fqdn.net/reportsserver/. When I try that I receive a login prompt. When I enter my credentials it tries for a few seconds and then sends another login prompt. I installed the report server using default settings. The reporting services db is on the same server as sharepoint. The configuration and other databases are on a remote S

SharePoint 2010 Anonymous Access or work around

I have found the necessary steps to permit anonymous access; however, it does not seem to work with a site running off of Central Administration (I am guessing there is a security feature that does not allow this).  Is there a way to grant anonymous access to a site running under the CA web app?  If not, is there a way, in the user permissions to a particular site, to grant access to anyone that tries to access?  

Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site.

Sharepoint site client access denied


I have an sharepoint application which was working fine.

I encountered a license expired message in sql server enterprise evaluation 2008 version after which i changed the date to 2 months earlier date, I have also changed HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\100\ConfigurationState to 3 after which sql server started working but the issue is that the clients are unable to access the sharepoint site completely. On providing the url the web site requests for logon information and then access is denied. The same url with the same authentication credentials is accessible from the server and the entire application works fine from the server. 

From the  client the below error page appears.

You are not authorized to view this page

You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.

Please try the following:

  • Contact the Web site administrator if you believe you should be able to view this directory or page.
  • Click the Refresh button to try again with different credentials.

Sharepoint "Access denied"


I'm stuck on the sharepoint access problem now.


We are using Manged Sharepoint 2007 (a hosted version of Microsoft® Windows SharePoint Services 2007) provided by a hosting company.

With the sharepoint site, some of users can not access the site. Message:

Access denied.

You do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource


It does not offer any logon prompt.


Users who can not access the sharepoint site are usually sitting in a LAN. I think it might be blocked by their policy. Am I right? Why do they need to block this site?


Please help me with this question.
