  • Joining workstations across VLAN

    I have just complete the installation of a VLAN for my customer that spans three real estate offices in three cities. Each location has their own network 192.168.15.0, 192.168.16.0 and 192.168.17.0. The SBS 2003 DC sits at 192.168.15.2 and can be browsed from either remote location.

    I have added 192.168.15.2 as a DNS server and a WINS server in the advanced TCP/IP properties of a computer at 192.168.16.0. When I try to join the computer at 192.168.16.0 using the command http://server1/connectcomputer I get the IE message computers from this IP address do not have permission to access this page. Is there somewhere in IIS on the SBS server where I can tell it that computers from 192.168.16.0 have permission to access the 'connectcomputer' web site? It appears only computers from 192.168.15.0 can access the connectcomputer web page right now.

    In the mean time, I manually joined the computer to the network and it worked without any problems or glitches. I have my firewalls set up to establish the proper Domain Trusts.

    Thanks.

    I don't believe /connectcomputer can work over subnets. It definitely can't on a "VPN Connection". I will check with my peers.

      I checked! You could do it over VLAN but you would have to make it like a branch office connection in RRAS.
      There is a very good document available on this available (unfortunately) to paid subscribers on www.smallbizserver.net. It is called, How to add an additional Domain Controller from a remote office to the SBS domain - Part 2
      TIA

        Thanks Teiger. I have cut & pasted all three articles and will digest them this weekend. I will be onsite next Tuesday.

        Terence Liu from Microsoft tells me in microsoft.public.windows.server.sbs that I just have to add the subnets in the Connectcomputer 'IP Address and Domain Name Restrictions' section.

        I already have the VLAN connection and do not need a replication domain controller so hopefully much of this article will not apply - we'll see. Once again, thanks for locating this for me.

          Sorry I didn't mean to imply you needed another DC - I just meant that you would have to make the changes to RRAS as stated in those articles.
