Question : openvpn is working but there is an issue

I successfully configured OpenVPN on my server. My client connects to the remote network. I can access everything I need to.

All of the pc's on the lan behind the UT server are windows 7. I can only access them if their firewall is off. I would like to punch a hole through the firewalls. The VPN assigned me an IP addy of

1. If i create a custom rule in the windows advanced firewall and allowed the network scope access, would that work? Or do I need to open any ports or protocols?

2. When creating the rule, windows wants to know if the IP address range is from a public network or a private network. Which do I choose? or should I open both?
I'm having no problems with the UT Server. The VPN Connects and I can even log into and manage the UT Server, from the VPN Client. I can ping the internal network as well. All is good there. It's routing just like it's supposed to. I can even ping the wireless printer attached to the LAN ( from the VPN client.

My problem is the network shares on the PC's behind the UT server. The built in windows firewall is blocking requests from the remote network. I can solve this by turning off the firewalls on each PC, but I would rather just punch a hole through it. I'm just not sure what hole to punch. I'm thinking I only need to let the IP address of the VPN through, which is 172.16.0.x. Is that correct?

Does anyone know how to make a win 7 box (home premium 64bit) trust a 172.16.x.x IP Addy while sitting on a 192.168.x.x network without disabling its firewall? Just enough that I can access the shared folders.

Don't know that I will be of much assistance.  

Looking at the file structure of the Worldship install on my computer, I would think that it is possible to accomplish what you are requesting, IF.....

First of all, you would need to be able to open/expand the .bak file that is generated to get to the files that were backed up.  Then there are .mdf files that SQL Database or Access uses.  If you have a copy of either, you may be able to open and access the databases.  Without knowing which is which, it would be hit or miss to find the proper records.  If they are accessible, then it would be fairly straightforward to export those into a .cvs file and import that into Worldship.

Without UPS support, this would be a job for the database guys, and that only if UPS hasn't locked down their database files.
