Networking redirect server question
Posted on 2011-09-10
I have the following scenario that I need some help.
The main site has the following:
1)Windows 2003 server - servername = server and ip = 192.168.1.1
2)Firewall - ip = 192.168.1.100
3)Wan accelerator - name = fastboxhq and ip = x.x.x.x
remote site has the following:
2)Firewall - ip = 192.168.2.100
3)Wan accelerator - name = fastbox and ip = y.y.y.y
I am trying to use wfs (windows file system accelerator). The wan accelerator caches the files somehow and speeds up the access of files that are often accessed. The documentation says to use \\fastbox at the remote site to access the files on the server and it works correctly. The office is using an application that has \\server hardcoded for its files access.
I tried changing the hosts file on the workstation to:
server y.y.y.y (ip of the fastbox) but it fails and I cannot login.
I am wondering if there is a way to redirect all shares being accessed in windows to the wan accelerator box since I cannot change it in the application?
