    How are the clients normally connecting from the Branch office to the SBS?
    Has it worked - if so, what has changed?
    Are you pinging by name or IP?

        and my domain name and exchange server address are different. my domain name format like abc-def.local and exchange server address abc.com.

          The addresses are fine - Exchange normally uses a different email domain to the AD domain

          I'm not familiar with WatchGuard - presumably you have one at each end (branch and main office), but what provides name resolution (and IP addresses) in the branch office?
          I am also assuming the branch office computers are domain members, but can you confirm it?
          (In fact, if you can do a little diagram showing some IP ranges etc that would help a lot
