Can't access Win2K server over VPN

By smcmillan ·
Hi there,

I have a SafeNEt/SoftP-K Win2k client PC which accesses my corporate network via a cable modem and our NetPilot Firewall. All is well, and have managed to log on to shared drives, email etc by inserting the IP addresses of the servers into the LMHOSTS file. The only applications I cannot run seamlessly over the VPN connection are those which reside on Windows 2000 servers as opposed to NT 4. Any ideas how I can get access to the Win2k servers as well? Bit of a networking newbie so sorry for vague post - any more info will be provided if reqested - thanks!

Are you getting an error message or permissions message trying to log on to the Win2K servers? This info would help. Also, is the domain itself an NT domain or a Win2K AD domain? This sounds like some kind of browsing or authentication issue, butit's hard to tell without further info on any messages or exactly what behavior happens when you try to connect to the Win2K servers.

some further info - our PDC and majority of servers are NT 4. When trying to access the Win2k servers I just get an error message saying that particular host is unavailable. These are all installed with win 2k.
