join a domain from a different network

By m_naveenkumar ·
i have configured the win2k domain controller in the domain A which is in the network address 202.185.111.X

I then configured the winXp proffesional (which is in the network address 202.185.80.X )as a member of the domain A in the by editing the Hosts file, Since i didn't have Wins on my network.

After logging on in the client system as a member of the domain A and when i tried to acces the domain controller by providing the same username and password as the login.

i received a error" The username you typed is the same as the username you logged in with. That username has already been tried.A domain controller cannot be found to verify that username"

Edit the lmhosts file

Make sure you put in this format:
(this is on all one line)

IP DomainControllerName #PRE #DOM:domainname

Then run nbtstat -R from the command line
Then run nbtstat -c to make sure everything took.

Since this is 2K it is using AD, is your xp's DNS server the same as the 2K's AD. Remember that AD uses DNS very heavily.

Being that you are on different networks, you are going to have to setup routing for the two networks to talk to each other.
