    Remote Access on W2K Professional

    Locked

    by web maxtor ·

    I am experimenting with dial-up RAS on W2K Pro, and find that I cannot logon to a domain. I can logon as a local user and browse workgroup members, but not the domain.

    The event log states:

    The user DOMAIN\REMOTEGUY failed an authentication attempt due to the following reason: The current configuration only supports local user accounts.

    How do I enable domain user logons from W2k Pro RAS?

      I’m not sure if this can be done. you have to remember that when you setup your W2K pro station like that its a RAS server and will act like one so it will authenticate the user logging in. In this case you do not log in to the domain itself so no domain authentication takes place. Why not use the server to dial into or install server on this system?

        I understand local verses domain logons, but since the event viewer references “current configuration”, I was hoping I could somehow “reconfigure”.

        I am not dialing into the server because the poor baby has enough to worry about. This is just anexercize to placate a VP.

      One of the best ways I have found out to placate a VP is to show him the wonders of terminal server. One of the downfalls of it though is that you have to have licensing fees for more than two administrators who wish to connect at the same time. But, one of the positives is that you can control up to four servers at one time. (Windows 2k mag)

        You are probably right. I was attempting to keep costs to a absolute minimum, but ultimately he will have to pay for the priviledge. Thanks.
