What operating system is running on the Domain Controller?

If you can ping the server then chances are it's not an issue with the firewall.

I'm guessing that all the other offices connect in a similar manner?

If this is so... check to see how the other remote locations are setup and mirror them...

Your questions are very vague... but I'll make an attempt at this...

On the firewall turn off DHCP and manually cofigure DNS to point at the main offices Domain controller's IP adderss... Rather then the Firewall handing out IPs the Domain Controller should be..

It seems that you are able to ping, and access all of the information so you are seeing the network... but when windows does a search for the Domain there is none defined, so it rejects you.

The domain Controller is running windows 2000 Server yeah I don't think that it is the firewall either.
As far as checking the setup of our old server the are own by a different company and we are trying to get away from them
by setting up our own DC and Exchange server for our 6 offices on our wide area network
so we are starting from new on this pretty much. I all ready got the servers setup and everything works
fine at our main office which is where the server are hooked up but go to an office across town and thats where the problem
happens hey look if any body knows Netscreen 5xp firewalls then give me a second and I can post the settings of the firewall
maybe you can see were I did something wrong or missing a setting Thank you very much.

Post the Netscreen.

Make sure that the remote computers have an account on the Domain Controller. Also, make sure that the remote computers are using the domain controller for DNS. Without at least these two things setup it will never work.

Check the even log on one of the remote computers and post any errors that you see.
