Site to Site VPN and Domain Controller

(OP)
Hi

We have a site to site VPN using Netgear routers,
Is there a way of directing the remote site XP Pro machines
to the Domain controller for logons etc. ?

Thanks

script it

RE: Site to Site VPN and Domain Controller

If the VPN is correctly established, the remote systems should be able to join the domain the same as the local systems would.  The only thing that might need some special handling is the DHCP server at the remote site.

RE: Site to Site VPN and Domain Controller

Also you will need to make sure DNS is working correctly.

RE: Site to Site VPN and Domain Controller

If the Netgear allows you to setup DHCP Helper addressess you could then setup a new scope on your normal DHCP server at your main site and have clients pull from there.  If not then you need to create a DHCP server (on the netgear perhaps) scope with your appropriate IP ranges etc and set to use your AD server for DNS.
