Routing & Remote Access

By rreyes ·
I have an NT4 PDC. I have a W2K server joined to the domain. I would like my remote users to be able to vpn into the W2K machine and be able to access their mail. I have installed & configured RRAS on it, I can dial in and connect to the machine butam unable to authenticate whether I create a local account on the W2K machine or if I try to use my domain credentials. I have 'allow access' checked for dial in. Thanks

Routing & Remote Access

by bowieb In reply to Routing & Remote Access

I had this problem with an almost identical setup on our network. I found that it was a problem with the way my Win98 home machine did the authentication. This is how I fixed it, so try it out and see if it works for you:

1) Set up your PC withthe same username and domain name as your office. The password doesn't matter.
2) Restart windows and CANCEL the login
3) Make the VPN connection to the office.
4) The system will pop-up with the domain login window again.
5) Login with your office password.
6) You should now be logged into your office domain and have access to your email.

Good luck!

Also, please check the Dial Up Networking (DUN) version. Needs to be 1.3 on a Win 9X workstation to VPN properly.
