I'm new to this. SBS 2011 domain at 192.168.1.0/24. There's a VPN to a remote office with ip 192.168.2.0/24
At the remote location I am setting up a desktop. In hosts file on this new computer, I added the server IP 192.168.1.3 pointing to server.domain.local ; server ; domain.local.
Tried running http://connect
and that didn't work. I added connect as an entry in hosts and that still didn't work. I googled and found that the dns on this new machine should point to the server. so I added that (the router at the remote location is doing DHCP and DNS normally.
Going forward, to be able to access shares on the server, etc. can the dns be the local router? it's a sonicwall. is there something I need to do on the sonicwall to have it know to check with the server / dns at the home office.
is there anything else I need to do to be able to have this remote computer act / think it's in the home office on the other subnet?
