OpenVPN just handles the ip routing/tunneling part - the domain part is
a separate issue - dealing with windows networking.

If you know the IP address of the machine (windows server or ?) you can
access the shares by (On XP for example):
By going to Start button -> run -> type
\\ipaddress and hit enter

It will then prompt for a password and/or give you a list of the
resources available through windows networking (SMB) on that machine.

You may get more functionality by setting your DNS entry on your home
machine to the DNS server of the office network - although that will
also lead to extra traffic normal web surfing will also send queries to
the office server.

Hi,
I have openvpn connection between my home and our office, how can i
access 
the computer of our office?
I can use the mssql server of the office via query analizer so the
openvpn 
works properly. But i dont know the name conventions to access other
shared 
folders of computers.
I dont understand the connection between openvpn and our domain system. 
Maybe i must login in our domain via vpn but i dont know how. I could
not 
find any openvpn and domain access related document.
Thanks in advance!
Csaba
