VPN connection from Windows 10 desktop to remote domain

I'm trying to access Domain "A's" servers (Windows Server 2008 R2) that are behind of a Ubiquiti Unifi Security Gateway firewall through a VPN connection from Windows 10 Pro desktop that's part of a different domain (also a Windows Server 2008 R2 domain).

I can establish the connection, but I can't access the remote servers or resources.  The Windows 10 PC I'm using is assigned a local static IP.

Can someone help me understand why I can't access the remote network after establishing the VPN connection?

What exactly does 'access the remote network' entail?  Trying to map drives?  RDP into the servers?

  • Have firewall rules been created that allow you to establish connections?
  • Are you authenticating to Domain A as a Domain A user, or at least as a Domain B users with a Trust configured?
  • Are you able to ping network IPs?
  • Are you trying to access objects by FQDN without appropriate DNS records?

I'm trying to logon to the remote network so that I can directly access file, for instance, as an authenticated user on that network.  I'd like to be able to have the same access and control over the remote network's resources (e.g. servers, printers, etc.) as though I was sitting at the remote location and logged on there.

I am authenticate to Domain B (local domain) through a PC that is part of this domain.  I am then establishing the VPN connection using the built-in VPN functionality from this PC (running Windows 10 Pro).

I am unable to ping remote network IPs.

All objects on both domains have FQDNs and the appropriate DNS records.  Both domains have been established a running for years.  The only thing that's changed is accessing the remote domain from my local pc.
