I am going to try and setup a VPN using the following two VPN servers:

(1) Netgear FVS338 8 port 50 user VPN
(2) Netgear FVS114 4 port 8  user VPN

I want to have a windows domain controller plugged into (1), will computers plugged in behind (2) be able to authenticate on the domain controller and map drives etc?

Absolutely, as long as  you set the client up with the proper DNS server that has the SRV records in it (assuming Active Directory)...
The Netgear may also have an option for the VPN to allow NetBios so be sure and check that if it does.

I am trying to test things right now. I don't currently have access to two public static IPs so I am just trying to get things setup by using all internal LAN IPs.

I currently have things setup as follows:

DSL router (192.168.1.1)
  *____________ (FVS338) (WAN: 192.168.1.101 | LAN: 192.168.10.1) (server)
  |                        *_________ Workstation 192.168.10.2
  |
  |_____________ (FVS114) (WAN: 192.168.1.100 | LAN: 192.168.50.1) (client)
                           *_________ Workstation 192.168.50.2

I am trying to get the two VPN boxes to talk to one another using the VPN Wizard. I have the FVS338 set to connect to a VPN client and the other to Connect to a VPN server. But no luck so far. I can't get  the workstations to ping one another.

I just called Netgear tech support in India and they said that you NEED to have each VPN box to be connected to a public WAN ip address. Is this right? Can it not be done using all internal IP addresses?

You can do it in a lab, but each FVS needs a default gateway. Do they both point to the DSL router?
You can try pointing each one to the other as the DG.
ie. FVS338 points DG to 192.168.1.100 and vice versa for the FVS114

Right now they both are using the DSL router as a gateway.

hmm, still doesn't work. I wonder if I am setting up the VPN itself right, perhaps I will call netgear back and then tell them I have public IP addresses just so they will tell me the next steps that need to be taken
