Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

it should work, but as a practical matter, you should have a dc on the same side as the clients otherwise your WAN becomes a spof-- no authentication, no useful network

I am not sure if it will work as all recourses I found says that kerbose did not work with NAT!
Also, I can't put a DC at the client side.
For the WAN link it’s 100Mbps so no traffic problem.
Kerberos will work with NAT, must use ticketless Kerberos

I will look up details and repost

I think this explains it quite well

Good luck
