Connection to SBS server from remote site with Hardware VPN tunnel
Posted on 2006-06-20
I am attempting to get workstations connected to a SBS server over a VPN tunnel. I have read several articles that detail the limitations of SBS2003 and the encouragement to use the wizards. I have tried that and still having difficulties. Below are the specific questions at hand.
- When I connect to \\servername\remote and download the remote connection manager all seems well. The extraction process stops with the following error "Extracting file failed. It is most likely caused by low memory (low disk space for swapping file) or corrupted Cabinet file." I have manually copied the file to multiple workstations with the same error. I removed the sbspackage.exe file today and recreated it using the RRAS wizard and the error persists. The screen behind the error shows the file it is extracting is advpack.dll.
- All of the PC's that I am installing this on are members of the domain and worked at the main site. Will this cause connection problems? Should I remove them from the domain and then re-join via the VPN connection?
- If I have a site-to-site hardware VPN can I connect to the internal IP address of the server for the VPN client? This would eliminate unauthorized users from getting to the server via the external IP address.
Any help is appreciated.
