sbs 2003 adding users across vpn tunnel

I have installed sbs 2003 on a dell server in one office in sherman oaks, ca.
we are using sonicwall firewall/routers.  I have a vpn tunnell that goes to their second office.
ip address in SO 192.168.1.x, Monrovia 192.168.2.x.
domain controller is in SO.  My issue is adding users in monrovia to domain.
I can ping by address, by name.
I try to open http://dlg-sbs/ConnectComputer in Monrovia office, but don't get anything back.

I can telnet dlg-sbs 80  it works
I can net use \\dlg-sbs\users\jcomitas password and it works.

I have been struggling with this for a while now and need some guidance.

thank you,

ConnectComputer does not work over a VPN connection.  There are instructions on how to do this here:

I'm not sure if this really answers the question.  Sonicwall Router/Firewalls handle the vpn connection between the 2 offices.  I can ping the domain controller from the remote office.  I am unable to open the http://dlg-sbs/connectcomputer from the web browser in the remote office

i have tried to connect via this method, the vpn part comes up and connects.  the domain login times out though.

Did you use "domain" or "domain.local" when connecting?

c3podatacommAuthor Commented:
domain.local and i tried domain.  the sonic wall is dropping the packet, thinking it is an ip spoof any suggestions?
Jeffrey Kane - TechSoEasyPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
Yeah, don't use the Sonic Wall to handle your VPN connection.  Use the SBS's native VPN.
