VPN WAN problem/issuesLocked
A good friend has a problem and I was wondering if I could get a few opinions…
the text of his email follows:
Got a problem on this end.. See if you know or can think of a solution…
We have a plant in Manchester, GA. which is where I am and
we have a plant in Atlanta, GA.
Manchester is domain; HMP
Atlanta is dommain; Atlanta.
We are trying to use Microsoft VPN between the 2 domains over the internet.
We have a 128k pipe on a T1, Atlanta has a DSL connection.
We can connect and do most of the stuff we need to do,, the problem is;
When we connect from the Atlanta domain and log into the HMP domain, they
(people in Atlanta)
loose all their existing network drive mappings. This part, I kind of
The problem is we want to be able to keep the existing drive mappings so we
run a program over the atlanta network instead of installing it locally on
the different pc’s.
What we Want to do, is make them both the same domain so the drive mappings
will be the same
on each domain.
I personally don’t think this can be done without both pdc’s fighting each
I don’t think my supervisor want to use the Atlanta server as a backup
domain controller for HMP
because then they would have to sync, and I don’t think he wants them to
sync over the internet.
Do you have any suggestions on this problem???
