Network Issue

Unanswered Question


I have Site to Site VPN set up, I can ping and access files across the VPN tunnel.

However the issue is that, it doesn't display the computers on the workgroup on my network neighbourhood( ie remote computers can not see the main office computers)

Is there a way I will be able to see these computers? if so what command can I use to allow me see these computers.

The problem is that windows is using broadcasts to tell eachother where they are.

No broadcasts comes over the vpn tunnel. (routing)

Yes you can use a DNS on the network and that will give you name resolution to that site.

But you will still not see them in the network neigbourhood. I do not know of a way around this.

good luck
