    Please help,

    One server (Win 2003) is connecting to other (NT) with VPN connection. \

    They are on different subnets ( and

    Both LANs have routers connected to Internet.

    IPs of routers are and

    On Win 2003 server I set up RRAS with Demand dial Network interface. The
    connection is working but I see only NT server from Win 2003 server.

    How can I see whole LAN ( from every computer in second LAN
    ( using one VPN connection?

    Which routs need to be set up and where (Server NT, Server W2K3, clint LAN 1
    and LAN2)?

  3. Like Robert said, make sure "routing" is enabled on both servers. NT4 calls
    it "IP Forwarding". There really isn't any "routes" to setup since you are
    only dealing with two subnets that are logically directly connected. Routing
    between "directly connected" networks is automatically understood and so
    there is no "routes" to configure.

    However, don't expect "computer browsing" in Network Neighborhood to be 100%
    reliable. There is theory and then there is real life. It would still work
    even if they don't show because running Applications don't need cute little
    icons in Net'Hood for them to function. You will need a common WINS Server
    or WINS Servers joined as "push-pull partners" to help the reliability of
    computer browsing in Net'Hood. Remember that NT4 systems are still WINS
    (Netbios) Based.
