Logging into a Domain over a WAN

By bradq ·
We have recently connected a remote office with a dedicated line between offices. In the main office we are using 192.168.1.xxx and in the remote office, its 192.168.40.xxx. We can connect and browse fine both directions. However, to access a computer name from Network Neighborhood you have to type in \\192.168.1.xxx, you cant use \\computername. The same thing happens when trying to join a Domain. You get "no domain server available to validate your request." I added an entry in the hosts filefor the pdc. I think i must need an entry in the lmhosts file telling it the Domain. Does anyone know if this is true and what the syntax is? Does this look right?

192.168.1.9 hocnr #PRE #DOM:HEMATOLOGY
192.168.1.9 "HEMATOLOGY \0x1b" #PRE

You need 20 characters between the quotes?

If you arnt using WINS, then yes entries in each clients lmhosts file will suffice. You will need an entry on each PC (or use the import option).

Your syntax is correct

Hope this helps
