We deployed VPN site
to Site between Site A and Site B. On Site A are all Microsoft resources
(DNS, Wins, PDC) We use Win NT4 architecture. On site B : only network
components (firewall - witch is DHCP server, switch) Some workstations on
site B can not connect to application (http applications, or Exchange 5.5
with Outlook client). From these workstation, we are able to ping with
success IP addresses, but we can not ping with success UNC.
At the same moment, for other workstations on site B, applications are
running. 20' minutes later everything work !!!
We use Win2K Pro and WinXP. For Win2K we go into the TCP/IP properties of
the LAN apapter(s), Advanced settings, DNS tab and uncheck the "Register
this connection's address in DNS" box, and Reboot. It seems to be fine now.
For WinXP we continue to have these problems. Do you have ideas ? A: The 20 minutes delay
sounds reasonable. It was probably the browser service taking a while to
stabilize. Are all the clients (including the XP ones) in both sites set up
as WINS clients?
