Do any apps exist that allow the browsing of remote drives on a VPN?

Simple answer -> Yes

Complex answer -> maybeeeeee.....

okay.. I am using Tunnel Driod to establish a SSL based vpn over Open VPN.

Once my VPN is established, I can successfully browse my file servers inside my LAN with out a problem using such programs as ES File Explorer.


However like any other VPN setup, the remote file servers must know how to route traffic back to you. first time I tried, I found I had to setup a additional route table on my default gateway/router for my file servers(my VPN gateway is not setup default gateway) for my VPN subnet to route the traffic back to...

So simple answer is yes, complex answer is more complex.

Suggest that you get VPN working with a regular PC(running linux, dont cheat with windows) and can successfully browse file shares, then just transfer VPN config over to andriod.
