Cannot Ping computer names over VPN Tunnel

By ATLTEK ·
What do I need to do to ping computer names over a VPN tunnel? We can hit IPs, but no Names. NetBios ports are allowed by the firewall.

Thanks!

Where do the WINS and DNS server sit in relation to the users and the tunnel?

WINS/DNS server

by ATLTEK In reply to WINS and DNS

The main office has a Windows 2000 Server running DNS. All the computers in that office can ping other computers by name and IP. The remote office can only ping computers in the main office by IP.

Static DNS on NIC

by ATLTEK In reply to Cannot Ping computer name ...

I added the Windows 2000 Server IP as a static IP address on the network adapters of the computers in the remote office. They can now ping the computers in the main office via computer name.
