We have two Netopia R910 routers, one at our main office and one at a remote location on another ISP. We have a VPN between the two routers which works great for file sharing and email (Exchange.) However, I can't see the remote machines to do things like remotely install Symantec. I believe that having them register with a WINS server here at the main office would help things like that immensely.
I read Mike Drechsler's post here:in which he says to make some changes to the netbios settings. Specifically, my question is regarding this section here where he says "You turn Serve NetBIOS scope to NO and you can turn on 'Serve NetBIOS type' to yes and 'NetBIOS type' Type H. After you are done in these screen go back out and turn off 'Serve DHCP Clients' if you don't want the Netopia to act as the DHCP server for the whole network."
We need the Netopia router to serve as the DHCP server for the remote location. Our Windows 2003 SBS server is acting as the DHCP server for our main office. How do we set up the Netopia routers to forward Netbios traffic over the WAN, but ONLY serve IPs for the one location? Thanks John
