http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi all, I'm trying to connect a client running Ubuntu 13.04 to a network share hosted by a file server which has recently been upgraded from Windows Server 2003 to 2012. Currently I am able to mount the remote share while connected to the LAN using: Code: sudo mount -t cifs //myserver.mydomain.co.uk/myshare /media/myshare/ -o user=myself,domain=myworkgroup,pass=********** However, I'm having trouble mounting the share via a Cisco (IPsec/Xauth) VPN. Prior to the server upgrade I had no problem with this, but now I get the following message: Code: mount error(112): Host is down Refer to t (HowTos)
