So I’m testing PEPVPN for a client. He has a Balance 305 (newest firmware) at his main office currently on 192.168.1.0 net, I have a Balance 30 at my office again with newest firmware I was on the same net couldn’t get PEPVPN to establish… I did some reading and I switched my network to 192.168.0.0 and it establishes… Yay!.
So I tried to connect to his file server via netbios name, couldn’t find it, try to ping via netbios name, couldn’t find host. I can ping/map via IP address.
In my Balance 30, under DNSproxy in local DNS records I did put in the netbios names for hostname and their matching IP address, no change (I’m not using the FQDN though)
I found this thread: https://forum.peplink.com/threads/5499-pepvpn-rdp-computer-name?highlight=pepvpn I tried it, no change
For the fun of it on my Balance 30 i told mine DHCP to issue the remote AD DNS server (192.168.1.6) as DNS for my network, still doesn’t work. before doing the changes in the thread above and doing the DNS switch I could do a ‘nslookup rdpserv’ and it would show me the netbios name and IP address correctly, but after the changes I get couldn’t find server error.
There are no additional firewalls on either side, it’s a simple peer to peer pepvpn. Once tested and working I will be using another Balance 305 from his 2nd office to pepvpn into his main office, and the workstations at the remote office will need to access the AD servers and printers via netbios.
Any ideas? Thanks
