Have 2 offices connected by a 2MB fiber connection. Cisco 1720 and 1721 on each end. Office 1, 10.147.28.xxx, Office 2, 10.223.112.xxx network. Recently users on the 10.223 network would run an RDP session to a terminal serve ron the 10.147 network with no problem. This server died and now we have a temporary Windows XP box in place for the server. I can RDP to the server but I need to be able to connect to the XP box and transfer files. From the 10.223 network I can ping the machine but I can't connect to a file share. Is there something on the router that I need to do in order to pass the traffic between the two?

Hello Steven,

ip helper-address


windows tries to broadcast to access shares so you convert it to a routable packet
