VPN - Unable to connect to w2k DC after creating a hardware VPN tunnel

Posted on 2004-04-09

Last Modified: 2010-04-12

I have created a VPN tunnel using a Linksys BEFVP41 firmware v1.41.1 & Linksys RV082 firmware v1.0.7.

What settings / configuration should I check on the w2k DC, w2k Pro Workstations, and XP Pro Workstations
if I want remote users to be able to Logon to the DC and access network resources as if they were in the office.

Both Networks use different Subnets.

Currently I can ping systems from the BEFVP41 Network to the RV082 Network, but not the reverse.

NetBios Broadcasting over TCP/IP is enabled on the BEFVP41.  There is no option on the RV082 for NetBios Broadcasting over TCP/IP.

Also what additional information do you need from my end?

Since one end has no option to enable netbios broadcasting, you best bet might be LMHOSTS/Hosts files on the workstations

I checked the firmware availabilty for the routers, and found that the RV082 has an update available that will allow NetBIOS Broadcasting.  I will have the firmware updated at the beginning of the week.

Thanks, the LMHOSTS/Hosts solution worked fine.

I would like to scan the intranet and create/update LMHOSTS/Hosts file for distribution with a script or tool...

Does anyone have information about this?
