    Hi,
    I've got a valid tunnel setup between 2 sites using VPN routers. For a
    client machine at the remote end of the tunnel, do I need to modify my SBS
    server's DNS to allow the client to authenticate on startup? My goal is to
    have the clients at the remote location logon to the SBS domain as though
    they were local to the domain. The SBS box has 2 nics setup on it.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Terry

    Hi Terry,

    If you have two NIC's in your SBS you should be aware that the second one
    will probably be considered as External. If you are using SBS Premium, ISA
    Server will block the traffic coming from you Router-to-Router VPN from
    getting to your Internal SBS NIC. This will prevent any domain
    authentication by default..

    A simpler set up would be to have your SBS with one NIC connected to one
    router VPN end-point and using the IP range of say, 192.168.16.0/24. The
    clients at the other end of the VPN tunnel would be using a different IP
    range, say 192.168.17.0/24. As long as your clients are using the IP
    address of the SBS box as their DNS server, it should work with a little
    tweaking.

    Kind regards,

    Wes
