I just recently installed a Cisco 3005 Series VPN. We currently have an NT domain at my main office. I use Windows XP Home edition at my home. I can connect to my office network thru the VPN tunnel. I can ping the machines on my office network. My problem is when I open up network neighborhood there is nothing there. Also when I use VNC, I have to put in an IP address instead of a machine name. We use WINS on our NT domain. Can anyone please help. Thanks.
our firm uses cisco 3015, nt doman and i use xp home edition at my home.. works fine.. including network neighborhood browsing and unc maps..
here's how we do it:
[on vpn concentrator]
group conguration (general tab) contains primary and secondary wins server ip addresses
user name and password combination same as nt domain user account (cisco vpn client passes username/pass to nt token)
[on xp home workstation]
on "control panel", "system" properties, "computer name" tab - workgroup name same as nt domain name
lmhosts file in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\ folder (should be same as the one on the pdc - if not, it must contain the pdc info for the nt domain)
tcp/ip properties "advanced" settings, "wins" tab - enable lmhosts lookup
that should do it.. like i indicated, mine works fine, with netbios name resolution - hope this helps
