I have 2 domains in 2 different locations. I have a VPn connection from my ISP between the 2. I also have 2 different ip ranges for each domain. I can ping domain A range ( 192.168.2.1) from B ( 192.168.1.1) and vica versa. Furthermore, if i want to connect to a shared folder on domain B ( \\192.168.1.1 ) i get access. If i want to access a shared folder on Domain A ( 192.168.2.1 ) it cannot access it. I can ping the 192.168.2.1 adress, but not access the shared folder. Is is a security feature in Server 2008 that i am overlooking ( the shared folder is on my domain controller which is 192.168.2.1 ) If i set up a shared folder on any other machine on my 192.168.2.xxx domain, i can get access from the B domain. Furthermore, i cannot resolve pc names on my Domain A ( 192.168.2.1 ), i take it because its a vpn connection and DNS wont resolve across 2 networks? What am i missing to enable a shared resource on my server 2008 DC?

Please assist.

1. if you enable the netbios in VPN firewall then you can able to access the shared folders by name based.

2. And also check the windows firewall on both the sides.

3. if it's both the server are in different domain, then create the trust relationship between the domains
