I want to connect a group of computers located in an office (Office1) to the head office (Office2) using a VPN connection. The computers in Office1 are in a domain "A" with a Windows 2000 server, and the computers in Office2 are in a domain "B." The DC is a Windows 2000 server that is connected to the ADSL line and there are firewalls in both of the offices. How can I configure the connection between the two offices so that the computers in Office1 can join and browse the domain on Office2 using VPN?
For best security, you should set up a VPN tunnel between the two sites. See the following Microsoft KB for information on how to join or access an internal domain from an external client over a VPN connection:
