W2k Server-to-Server VPN with Proxy 2.0

By jaybrdie ·
The question I have is I would like to set up a VPN from one W2k Server to another W2k Server (both have Proxy Server 2.0 as firewall) and be able to have clients to be able to see and connect to other client computers on either location. Both Servers are on the same domain. Both servers have and internal and external NIC. Internal on one domain is 192.168.5.1/24 and the other is 192.16.2.1/24 (meaning both are subnetted as class C). The external NICs are connected to the internet. I was able to set up routing over the VPN but for some reason the Win98 clients at the remote location will not log on to the network. The Win2k Pro clients were difficult but did join. I can take the Win98 clients to the main office and they will log on to the network and will work once I get them back to the remote office. Any suggestions on configuring my VPN to route properly? I even tried removing the firewall one night just to get them to join but no success. It wouldn't be a problem but I have about 30+ Win98 clients to join and carrying them back and forth one at a time is not an option. I appreciate any and all suggestions! Thanks!

W2k Server-to-Server VPN with Proxy 2.0

Have you tried setting up wins servers on both sides, and let them replicate with each other ?
W95/98 clients still depend on wins, if this cannot be done you can try to edit lmhosts, and include the domainname and ip address of the DC.
Good luck,
Marcel

I had try setting up WINS and LMHOSTS files but that's not the issure. The Win98 computers are able to receive an IP address from the DHCP Server. They can ping the Server on the local network, the PDC Emulator on the remote network, and the domain name. When you go to log on the domain it says the domain can not be found. I've never seen this before.

I have found that the problem resolves in an error with the Replication Link. Apparently when we had a problem with one of the servers a while back it caused this problem to occur with the new server. The Target name of the computers had to be repaired using the repadmin tool. Thanks for the suggestion.
