Hi

I've 3 LAN let's call Site A, Site B and Site C

Site A has 2 computers running on a workgroup

Site B has a sbs 2003 domain server with 10 computers on a domain.

Site C has a 2003 domain server with 10 computers on a domain.

Site B and C are totaly appart they don't belong to the same domain or the same forest.

I've 3 Draytek routers, one is a 2800 and the other 2 are 2500

Draytek 2800 is the vpn server and is located on site B
Draytek 2500 are vpn clients located on site A and site C

VPN is working great sharing files.

I can print from site A to site C
I can print from site C to site A
I can print from site B to site A
I can print from site B to site C

BUT

Can't print from site A to site B or from site C to site B

Cant't print to no printer from site B from anywhere.

Can someone help ??

Thank you

Carlos

Hi Carlos- jm,

Sounds like you have a fun one on your hands.  Can I ask that you give me a view regarding your routing plan (tables) and IP address ranges that you are using.  I have an Idea that this may be a routing problem more than anything else.  I don't know the routing equipment you are using. Do they support port filtering and or NAT.  The printers, are they network connected and can we have a look at their IP setup also?

Regards,
M

hi

Site A lan = 10.10.11.0 subnetmask 255.255.255.0 def. gateway 10.10.11.254 printers 10.10.11.111 and 10.10.11.249

Site B lan = 10.10.10.0 subnetmask 255.255.255.0 def. gateway 10.10.10.254 printers 10.10.10.5 and 10.10.10.6

Site C lan = 10.10.12.0 subnetmask 255.255.255.0 def. gateway 10.10.12.254 printers 10.10.12.5 and 10.10.12.6

site A -> VPN -> site B <- VPN <- site C

Routers support filtering and NAT

Thank you

Routing tables seem fine...

What are the IP settings of the Printers?

more details i think on your net structure, is this single domain with root of the domain as SBS....i think your problems are coming from SBS which is where we need clarifcation on network structure

Is it at all possible that your printers in Site B do not have default gateway's setup for them?
