Will a VPN (PPTP) allow me to connect to my NETGEAR NAS?

It all depends on HOW you access the NAS. I can connect to mine using a PPTP VPN to my router at home, and am able to browse HTTP and SSH ports.

Should do, it all really depends on how the VPN is terminated in your home network...

Don't use PPTP though, if you can avoid it. Problematic and found to be lacking in the security department as well...

I have setup a VPN (PPTP) to my work network but the mapped drive on the work network does not connect. Can anyone recommend a method so I can view the mapped drive in Explorer remotely?
