Vpn-can ping by ip not name

By kashmeir63 ·
Hi,
I recently setup a vpn, connecting two firewalls together.It is a windows nt4.0 network to a windows 2000 network. From the windows 2000 network I can ping other computers on the the nt4.0 side, but only by ip address I cannot ping by name, the only machine I could ping by name is the PDC. I also have a hp printer on the 2000 network, being shared. How can I print to it from the nt4.0 side.
Any help would be appreciated.

need some more information from you on your e.g. what protocols do you have blocked at the firewall.

Does your DNS server support resolving names on the NT4 side? Also, make sure you have a port open for DNS, and have the NT4 side DNS server listed as a forwarder on your Windows2000 side.
