I am trying to connect from home to work through a netgear vpn. It says I am conected but I can't ping the work server name but can it's ip address. When I try to access the program we use it says it can't find any computers on the local network or the other message I get when trying to connect using the server name is that the sql server was not found or is not working. I had everything up and running before but my computer crashed and had to be reformatted.
