logon to NT 4.0 domain from Remote site

By frankc ·
We just installed 3 Adtran NetVanta routers. 2 and site "A" and 1 and site "B". 1 goes out to the internet from site "A" and the other 2 link both sites through a dedicated T1. The internet works fine at both sites and I can ping everything on both networks. I have a 192.168.2.0 network at site "B" and a 192.168.1.0 at site "A" My problem is that I can't logon to the domain from site "B". The NT 4.0 PDC is located at site "A" with WINS running. I can ping the UNC of the server. All the workstations at site "B" are Win98SE.
Any help would be appreciated, Frank

Please read the Technet article "How to Write an LMHOSTS File for Domain Validation and Other Name Resolution Issues"
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;en-us;q180094
(please remove any spaces)

It will tell you how to use the LMHOSTS file on both domain controllers to make this work. WINS is not enough for this setup to work.

hope this helps

Typically a router will not route broadcasts.

You can set up a WINS proxy on your "B" subnet. This keeps you from having to maintain a lot of LMHOST files.

You can find a lot of information on setting up a WINS proxy, here is a KB link to getstarted (remove any spaces / line wraps):
