NT4 server - W2K Client

NT4 server - W2K Client

NT4 server - W2K Client

We are using a w2k client that is trying to access an NT4 server, using a SonicWall VPN Client.

I'm using a normal dial-up facility that is connecting to an ISP before the client VPN connects to our firewall.

The VPN client is working fine as I can ping all servers behind the the firewall.

However when I try to connect using the servers netbios name it fails.

I have tried entering script in the lmhost file, but to no avail.

Any ideas?

RE: NT4 server - W2K Client

check out my response under the "Connecting to vpn with win2k" thread...  it will tell you that you need to open some ports on the router or firewall..   and it may provide some other details you need to successfully be allowed to browse the internet via your corporate vpn internet connection...let me know if this helps

RE: NT4 server - W2K Client

I had the same issue using Cisco's VPN with a PIX box. To fix it added a DWORD reg setting to the Interface card of MTU 1300. The problem I was having was that the packet was getting fragmentated using the default setting.
