2 Locations.   for example:

1 Location =      Domain:  MainOffice
1 Location =      Workgroup:   BranchOffice

MainOffice Internal IP: -
BranchOffice Internal IP: -

There is a VPN between the Main Office and the Branch Office.

at the branch office, it's just a workgroup of computers, no domain controllers or servers..

is it possible to get these computers to show up in the network neighborhood of the main office computers ??

    Accepted Solution

    you could configure a wins server on the Domain server and get the workgroup computers to use this. or you could config the Computers to use the domains DNS server and make updates by allowing non secure update on the DNS.

    but because you have a vpn, i woul probably recommend going down the wins route so you are not passing all dns requests down the VPN links from the workgroup computers, even though WINS is old technology i reckom this would fit in with your strategy fine
