I have a client that has 2 sonicwall 2040 firewalls. office in Chicago will VPN into the office in Miami.
Chicago office internal ip is 10.1.1.1 and is on a different domain than the miami office
miami office is 10.1.2.1 is on a differnt domain than the chicago office.
the vpn is connected fine. However the chicago office needs to be able to connect via UNC to a shared folder \\server1\share. I have setup conditional forwarders so i can connect via unc to \\server1.domain.com\share but the software we use won't allow us to do that, it needs to be \\server1\ only.
is there anything i can do so that i can ping and connect to server name only instead of servername.domain name if the offices are on seperate domains? Besides adding a host file to each computer?
