VPN and Domain membership

VPN and Domain membership

Post by Marty Lea » Thu, 05 Aug 2004 01:42:09


I was able to setup ISA 2000 as a VPN server connected to a Win2000 domain.
I am able to connect and authenticate to the domain. When I try to view
shares I can't. I am currently setup at home as a workgroup sharing files
between two computers. I decided to join the domain and then was able to
view all the domain's shares. Then I am no longer sharing files with my
workgroup. Also, to join the domain I had to reboot and WinXP made a new
profile. Is there a way I can connect to the domain via VPN and access
shares without join the domain and having a new profile?

Thanks,
-Marty

domain.

That's because you didn't really log into the domain. The dial-up VPN
credentials *only* create the VPN link,...they do not log you into anything.


Once the machine is a domain member you can login over the VPN by selecting
the checkbox that says "Log on using dialup connection" at the
"Ctrl-Alt-Del" prompt.


No. A machine cannot be a member of a Domain and a workgroup at the same
time. The closest thing you can do is make your workgroup the same name as
the domain and leave it in the workgroup.

If I rename my workgroup the same as the domain will I be able to access all
the shares on the domain?

Well, it will be easier anyway. But you could do it even without that by
entering credentials properly by prefixing the username with the domainname
at the prompt.
