How do I join my work domain from a laptop computer that is not in the same subnet?
Posted on 2008-06-22
I have set up some Microsoft Server 2003 servers with AD and DNS. I have some public zones corresponding to name resolution on websites, and I have a .local domain which I am beginning to understand is generally used for "private" stuff that goes on in my subnet.
I have a laptop computer that I sometimes carry five miles from my subnet and sometimes carry 1000 miles from my subnet. I am wondering how exactly to connect to my domain at work, and the resources at work, when I am not at the office. I am guessing VPN may figure into this somehow, in which I need a step-by-step on how to get going with it. Or, I may yet need to set something else up with my DNS (maybe a public zone for this connectivity?), or I may not be finished with my configuration.
Please let me know how I can connect to the assets on my domain. Thanks!
