This is likely networking 101, but.... I'm stuck.
SBS 2011 server at location A (192.168.1.0 subnet)
Location B is connected to location A with VPN, subnet 192.168.2.0. The router at location B currently gives out public DNS IP addresses
What's the right way to set things up for domain added laptops running win 10 pro at location B to be able to access shares on the server like \\serer\files? The server is the domain controller. There's only that 1 server.
Use a Hosts file? It has that now with entries:
server.domainname.local 192.168.1.3 (is this needed?)
When they click on a mapped drive, a windows security box pops up asking for credentials, and even though we check 'remember my credentials', it asks again after a reboot. This window ALSO says 'the system cannot contact a doimain controller to service the authentication request. Please try again later.
You click OK after adding credentials, get to the files and all is fine. till a reboot.
What do I need to do so it can get to the domain controller across the VPN?
Why doesn't it save the credentials after a reboot?
Why does it even ask for the credentials - the user and password entered when logging in are the credentials.
