windows 7 discovery of different networks
Posted on 2013-05-24
I have 2 windows 7 pro workstations in 2 different geographical locations. These locations are connected using 2 sonicwall vpns.
One is on a 192.168.2 network and the other is on a 192.168.20 network. Both are joined to the same domain using the same DNS server. Both are registered correctly within my DNS and Active Directory.
They discovery other devices on their local networks but none on any other subnets or networks.
I can ping, and remote desktop to each one from the other, but I cannot see either one through network discovery.
I need them to be able to discover each other so they can share a mySQL database. The vendor setting up the database connection says if they can't see each other through network discovery the connection between the mySQL databases can't work.
Anyone have any idea as to why the discovery isn't working?
