  • authenticate from diff location

    greetings!

    on my main campus:
    dsl->router->switch
    users are log-in/authenticated thru ad on my domain server
    users are using windows xp pro

    on my annex campus site
    dsl->router->switch
    users are using windows xp pro (no ad)

    1. how can the my annex campus users get log-in/authenticated on the domain server on the main campus

    2. once authenticated, can they access the portal on the server?

    3. is it better to install a new server (domain) on my annex campus to interconnect the 2 sites

    Note: portal is not published on the internet

    Are they usign cashed credentials on those XP's?
    They obviously need to be part of a security domain, in order to authenticate to that domain.

    Sollution: Cashed credentials, Enable Windows Authentication on the Prortal site?

      I am not sure if I got you correct, but as far as I understand from what you said, I would say, use "Intranet" or "Extranet" (Depend on your needs).

        btw, the users on the other campus are also the same users on the main campus. so, its means that that they should be using the same accounts on both campus. ty

          If you can get another server then:

          - Link the sites with a VPN tunnel
          - Install an additional DC at the new site


          If you can't get a server:

          - Link the sites with a VPN tunnel
          - Have clients use DNS servers from annex campus
          WARNING: depending on how many users are at the remote site and how much bandwidth you have between the sites 1) logons may be slow 2) connection may be bogged down

            what is the advantage of setting up another server on annex site?
            what should be the internet bandwidth if i have about 15 users on the annex site?

              Authentication and name resolution doesn't take place over a WAN link.

              what should be the internet bandwidth if i have about 15 users on the annex site?
              It varies greatly on the applications used, number of users, and how slow/fast is reasonable for users to work with.

                here's what i did so far for a test connection.

                on my dc, i added a nic/new dsl connection. dsl modem directly connects to the nic.
                added a new vpn connection to accept client

                on my xp clients on the annex campus, i added a vpn connection

                tested and working fine. the vpn client connects to the dc, and portal

                the prob is after connecting, the internet connection on my xp client is lost thus is cant surf the wed. i have to disconnect my vpn. i want to have both services. help

                  I think it's a setting in RRAS that would allow you to connect through the mail campus' gateway to the Internet.

                  But it would be better to setup a point to point VPN tunnel on the routers.

                    Re: authenticate from diff location

                    i got working! i just uncheck the box - Use default gateway on remote network. Under tcp/ip settings on my vpn connection.

                    regarding the point to t point connection. here's what i got. on my main campus my router has a vpn feature but on my annex i'm using a netgear router without vpn feature.

                    i'm planning to set-up a new server on the annex... maybe ill make a new thread on how to properly set-up the connection. ty
