When using VPN and SBS 2008 cannot resolve netbios name of connecting CPU
Posted on 2010-03-24
My company is running an SBS 2008 server configured for VPN access. Our VPN clients are using Dell laptops installed with Web Server 2008. However, when we connect to the office via VPN, we cannot resolve the netbios name of the connecting computers from our SBS server. We need to be able to use the netbios name (and not have to use the FQDN or IP address) to be able to sync our SQL tables between the two computers.
When connecting the clients via VPN, from the Web Server we can ping any netbios name on our office network. However, this does not work going from our SBS server back to the VPN’d Web Server.
Do you have any ideas on how we can get the Web Server identified by the computer name from the SBS server?
