I have combed the forums . . . tried everything (To the best of my ability), and I am really, really stuck. Any help will be GREATLY appreciated!
Main office: 192.168.118.0/24
SBS 2003 Server (192.168.118.2) was Firewall/router - replaced with Untangle box (192.168.118.1) acting as a openVPN Server.
Satellite office - 3 PCs - 192.168.25.0/24
Added an Untangle box (192.168.25.1) as a VPN client, VPN connected successfully.
Local clients (192.168.25.110) can ping resources at main office such as SBS Server (192.168.118.2), by ip address.
Goal: Join the computers in the satellite office to the domain. (Worst case, at lease share resources).
I cannot join the domain. I receive message "A domian controller could not be contacted".
Reading the forums it looks like my satellite computers need to have the DNS of the Main Office as their DNS to join the domain. If I manually set their DNS to the SBS Server (192.168.118.2). They lose all DNS functionality, including internet. So it appears as if the DNS is not passing over the VPN connection?
- I have packet filters on both Untangle boxes to Pass - Source Interface - VPN
- In my Open VPN I have checked "Export DNS"
- In my Open VPN I have enabled DNS Override, setting it to 192.168.118.2
- nslookup on a machine in the satellite office yields: DNS request timed out.
Successful VPN connection with IP addresses
Cannot ping domain names unless DNS manual entires, or HOSTS file is updated.
Cannot RDP or VNC between satellite office and main office.
Cannot join domain
Thank you again!
