Domains connections over VPN's
Posted on 2006-04-24
I am having problems with getting my domain fully functional over our VPN's in certain locations. I have the DNS server running on the Domain controller machine and I then manually enter DNS (sometimes WINS) on the machines over the VPN tunnel to the DNS server (manual entry) and the machine for WINS (which it is also running). I can see the machine and join the domain but it won't apply the policies in some locations. I believe it has something to do with the VPN routers - blocking certain types of traffic but I am not sure. The routers are Linksys RV042's and the main router (which is the gateway VPN) is a netgear vpn prosafe firewall router. I have been fumbling around now trying to get this fully functioning and I keep running into probs in certain locations.
Is there better vpn routers I should be using to simplify this process? Cisco? I am worried of the Linksys and Netgear tunnels going down (which has happened before).
We have 7 offices with 15-20 clients at each - all on T1s. I really need to know the best way to get my domain working in the most efficient way. I want to have it only accessed through the VPN at our offices (for secure purposes).
If anyone has any suggestions I would really greatly appreciate!!
