Domain Authentication possible over Cisco VPN connection?
Posted on 2004-07-30
Hopefully this will be an easy question...
My company has a VPN connection from here to a remote location. On this end (corporate headquarters) we have a Cisco 1720 series router. On the other end we have a Cisco PIX 501. Right now it just handles print jobs between the two offices. Currently our remote users access our network via a Windows 2000 Terminal Server. What I would like to know is if it is possible with these two routers to have my clients be authenticated as if they were within my LAN. Just for "kicks" I had one of my users attempt to join the domain, but without success because the computer couldn't find the DC. So, with these two routers, would it be possible for my remote users to login to our Windows 2000 domain as if they were on a computer here in the building? Or would a better approach be to setup a VPN connection on each remote client PC? We currently have about 5 users at our remote location.
