I have a windows 2000 server that runs RAS, I just set it up and dialed from a remote location and was able to login. I am unable to  browse the network though, and when I look in My Network Places all I see is the local workgroup and not the DOMAIN that I configured my client to log into. I know there is an issue with WINS but thats all shady to me. ANy ideas on how I would be able to browse and access files on the remote network or just the remote RAS server???????????/

Just go to run in the start menu and type \\192.168.1.50   (replace 192.168.1.50 with the IP of the machine you want to browse) it may take a few seconds depending on connection speed.

the reason for this is that windows 2000 is bridging between your remote access client and the 2000 RAS server.

snerkel is right, you will most definately need to use the UNC universal naming conventions that is \\ipaddress of the remote computer

I am pretty positive of the address 192.168.1.254 but when I try \\192.168.1.254 it says the address does not exist or something....

Make sure that "Allow callers to access my local network" is ticked in TCP/IP properties of the RAS

I think it is in Network and Dial-up Connections, incomming connections properties, networking tab, select TCP/IP then properties I think it is then on Networking tab (going from memory).

you need to put in the address of the remote computer you are trying to access.. not the RRAS server..

so \\ipaddressofthecomputeryouaretryingtoaccess

to make sure you have access try the ping command.

i.e. ping 192.168.0.20 where that is the IP of the remote computer - not the RRAS server
