I recently took a job as network administrator for a small company. They have one main site and 2 remote sites. We are running NT 4.0 servers and mainly win98 clients. One of the larger problems here is that the clients at the remote site are not getting NT authentication from the server. Also, there are only able to see computers on the network that are local to that site. I have checked with the company that manages our VPN services and they have assured me that they are not blocking any traffic on any ports through the tunnell. I have also tried editing the LMHosts file to include the computers at other sites as well as the servers. I can ping all of the computers on the network from any location, I just can't see them in Network Neighborhood, and can't authrnticate to the domain controller. The computers that are local to the domain controller have no problems. I am wondering if the problem might be related to the fact that the name of our private NT domain is the same as our public domain (blah.blah.nc.us)Could this be causing the remote computers to look out on the internet for the domain controller, and if so, why doesn't the static mapping through the lmhosts file solve this problem. If anybody could shed some light on this subject it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
