What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

He said he is not connecting through a PIX via VPN...but he stated he was trying to authenticate to the domain.  AD domains would require DSCLIENT to be installed to authenticate.

Tell him to download and install DSCLIENT on NT.  Check out the following link for info and download details.  See if it helps.

a few things to try..

1. Have him disable all software firewalls like ZoneAlarm.
2. Make sure his cable router is not blocking any ports. (53, 137, 139, 445, etc..)
3. add a route to the internal network like so:
"route -p add 192.168.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0 w.x.y.z"
Where 192.168.1.0 is the internal network of your main office, 255.255.255.0 is the subnet mask, and w.x.y.z is the external IP address of PIX

Now try and ping the IP address of the DC or any computer at the office.  not the computername but the IP address.
