I have a desktop which is not a member of the domain, although it's added on Active directory computers. I used to be able to connect to mapped drives and print to network printers, but it's no longer working. I'm not sure what happened, but i have tried several things, without any success. I connect over cisco vpn client and am able to ping all network resources, including the dns server. I am also able to rdp into any computer on the domain when connected on vpn. I have even tried adding the computer to the domain, but it says the "domain controller for domain x cannot be found." I have added the dns server into the host file, and am completely stumped on this. I'm on a home network over remote vpn client, and used to be able to connect to mapped drives, but no longer am able to. I don't want to replace the computer, but I'm all out of options. My laptop is also at my house, and has no problems. It's the same setup, off domain, but added into AD on domain server. No problems with network connections on laptop, just on desktop. Please advise. Thanks.
