    I have a client XP1.Domain1.local .
    Now he's connected to another network where there is a DFS server:
    Server2.Domain2.local

    the problem is:

    XP1, using account Domain2\User2 can access
    \\server2\MyDfsRoot

    but CANNOT go to any dfs subdirectory. for example can't access
    \\server2\MyDfsRoot\Folder2

    Why? he can correctly access \\server2\MyTargetFolder2 but can't
    understand that Folder2 is mapped on \\server2\MyTargetFolder2. why? maybe
    non-domain computer cant' access DFS info?

    thanks in advance.
