Windows XP VPN Peer-toPeer Networks

171 New Member
I hatve 2 peer to peer networks which I am triying to connect via the Windows XP VPN application. I have achieved the following:

1. Connect to Remote Office
2. Ping all Computer IP Addresses in remote office
3. Use Terminal Services (Remote Desktop) on the Server computer- please note the server is also running windows XP.

I would like to achieve the following but have been unsuccessfull and am confused on what I am doing wrong.

1. Browse the Remote Office's local network, on "My Network Places"
A. The Subnet Mask for both local networks is
B. Every computer has a different IP address
C. Both Local Networks have the Primary DNS Server as
D. For both offices I have gone to the Server and Client PC and set IPEnableRouter in Regedit to 1.
I.Do I need to do this on all the Machines or just the Server.
E. I have set up a separate User Logon on all the Remote Office PC's with passwords.
2. I Would also like to establish remote desktop with the other PC's on the remote network but I can only establish it with the Server. The thing is that when I connect to the VPN it gives the Server 2 IP Addresses one which the VPN allocates and one which it has for it's local network connection I Use the VPN Allocated IP for remote desktop I have not tried its local IP.

Your help would be greatly greatly appreaciated

I am now trying out a product called Himachi in conjunction with LogMeIn, they seem to be quite good, and no VPN expertise is required

Hello, is there a simple way to detect whether the host machine of my c# application is connected to a windows network or whether it is connected peer-to-peer simply to one other machine (IP-adress unknown)? My first try would be to find typical UDP broadcasts within a certain period of time. If there are no such broadcast packages then I could assume that it is a peer-to-peer connection otherwise it is a windows network.

We have a situation almost exactly like that in the MS documentation vis a vis peer-to-peer replication. We have three servers and three user groups, one each in Chicago, New York, and Bermuda. Because of our business practices, we are fairly confident that only one group will be updating a given record at any one time but the users will be updating their own local database servers and those updates must appear on all three servers....

I have been trying for several days to create a peer-to-peer replication among three servers. I first created the publication on Server A, enabled it for peer-to-peer to peer on the publication properties dialog then backed up the database and restored it to servers B and C. Once restored, I tried to Configure Peer-to-Peer Topology from the right click menu on the publication in SQL Management Studio (2005). When I click OK, the wizard...

Hello. Well, this is my first post on any USENET group anywhere, so I hope I get it right. Basically, I just want to get some opinions on a plan of mine for a new project. I want to produce a small, peer to peer, file sharing network for the use of myself and some of my friends. The purpose of this is basically to allow us to share files conveniently without relying on technology such as Windows Live Messenger (Yuck).

I am working on Windows Mobile 6 with VS2005. I want my mobile devices to connect to a shared folder on a PC in an isolated network environment.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...

But I'm wondering if it's possible to do the same thing, with 2 Pfsense firewalls...
