Unable to join domain

Have a Windows 2000 Active Directory domain, trying to add a windows 2003 server as member server, it fails and gets error "the network path was not found" can ping the domain controller by name and IP, the domain controller is located in another building and we have a vpn connection to that location. Stuck and any ideas appreciated, thanks!

Is there a firewall anywhere between the two machines?

Is there any NATting between the way??? Maybe the names of the servers are translated... And by member server you mean only adding to the domain?? If you want to do a DCPROMO, you first need to do a adprep /forestprep and adprep /domainprep.

What is being NATted?? Can you ping both servers by it's original ip address?? Does the NAT do an address translation on ip address or on pecified ports??

Ping okay on IP, the NAT dioes translation by IP address, resolved this one by joining to a the building NT domain, let dns work and was able to join our AD domain, very weird setup here.  Thanks for comments though!
