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.

dns order in Monrovia
192.168.1.61
4.2.2.2
4.2.2.3

thank you,

John

Yeah, don't use the Sonic Wall to handle your VPN connection.  Use the SBS's native VPN.

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

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

Check the directory security of connectcomputer web site in IIS and make sure that it is set to allow connections from 192.168.2.x addresses.
