Replication Failing

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
OK, so i have two DC's on 2 sites, connected by an odd setup

DC1 has IP
deafult gateway
and from what i can tell tehe outside address of that router is
server 2003 x64

DC2 has IP
default gateway
and from what i can tell tehe outside address of that router is
server 2003 x86

(IP addresses changed but designed to still show you the idea)

now obviously the external ips are part of a managed network, from what i see anything sent to the outside addresses is passed stright through to the servers

basically i'm having issues with replication, i've been working on this all day and getting nowhere, now i'm just seeing everything as a blur.

the only change i believe i have made was to move the two servers into different active directory sites, as they are on different physical sites with different subnets. they servers can seem to talk to each other, dcdiag seems to come cleanish.

what tests would you like me to run? i feel like i have run them all, but i'll let you ask and i'll keep you informed
(p.s. its now 23.14GMT, i'll be running these tests in the morning)
(p.p.s. My money is currently on DNS issues, but ask anything and i'll answer)

thanks in advanced
