Logging on to a domain through a VPN
Posted on 2001-06-04
I have an NT4 domain with the domain controller on one (local) side of a VPN and some clients on the other (remote) side of a VPN. I want to log on to the domain from the remote side of the VPN
The remote IP setup is (where the client resides):
Network address: 10.0.1.0
Local setup (Where domain controller resides) is
When you try to get the (NT4) workstation to join the domain it can't find it.
I have put an entry in the lmhosts file of
IP Address PDC Name #pre #dom:domain name
I can ping and connect to the PDC from the remnote client
We don't have WINs or DNS running on either side of the VPN (We could set them up if necessary).
It's only a couple of machines so Lmhosts file would be handy.
