File browsing between branch offices

    We have SBS2003 Standard in the main office and Windows Server 2003 R2
    configured as DC in the branch office. Both servers have 2 NIC (one connected
    to LAN, another to WAN). Additionally there are two D-Link VPN routers which
    connects two LAN subnets (main office and branch office).
    I have two questions:
    1. How to configure DNS on branch server? Does it must be secondary server
    for company.local or primary?
    2. I can browse network and I am able to see computers located in another
    subnet. But when I try to browse computer in another subnet- I get message
    that "path not found" (only exception is server in another subnet- it can
    browsed normally).

    Thank you in advance.

    With best regards

    Branch office DNS should be active directory integrated.
    Branch Office server should look to itself for DNS
    Branch Office DHCP should hand out branch server dns and gateway ip address

    Network browsing over vpn tunnels is sometimes iffy but \\mainserver\share
    should resolve faily quickly from any computer in the branch office.

  3. To help with Resolution on VPN
    Set "IsDomainMaster" to "TRUE" in the registry of the SBS box.
