Browsing computers

I have several sites connected via VPN, each on its own network but all sites belong to one domain. The workstations for one of the sites do not show up when I browse my network from Network Neighborhood.  I can ping them both by name and by IP address but they don't show up when I browse.  What would cause this?  AD is running at the main site only.

Hi GPScribner,
 have you added the dns server address to the vpn connections?

Hope This helps

you must have the 'netbios' over tcp/ip running. Although this is running by defualt and you would have had to switch it off yourself I would think. This can be found in device manager -> view -> show hidden devices -> under the 'non-plugandplay drivers heading

A setting for this also exists in the properties of your LAN -> TCP/IP properties -> Advanced -> WINS tab -> Netbios over tcp/ip

you must also have the 'client for Microsoft Networks' checked in the properties of the LAN connection.
