I have 2 Windows 2003 Servers in 1 Domain at 2 Locations. They are connected thru a Dedicated Tunnel.

I can't ping a computer from one side to the other side.

Here is my setup

Server1  192.168.0.X
Server2  192.168.1.X

Thanks,
Rick

It sounds like there is a problem with the routes in your tunnel, assuming the tunnel is up and active.  What are you using to establish the tunnel?

interesting, are there any firewalls on the workstations that would be causing them to deny pings.  

you may want to ensure that your access list permits traffic from one end to get to anything on the other end and it isn't somehow restricted to your DC ip address.

since your workstations on each end are working fine then i assume that the network settings are properly configured, but it may be something to verify.

Are you enabled the windows firewall on the workstation? Winxp with SP2 turns on the firewall by default.
