Group policies not working through VPN routers.

Routers
I have two Multitech routers with a VPN connection. My users can log into our Windows 2000 domain, but cannot receive group policies. The vendor's tech support told me that VPN's in general have limitations with services such as group policies and that "Active directory and group policies will not go over VPN tunnel since it might be doing some kind of broadcast. VPN tunnel will not support any broadcast beside NetBIOS." Is group policy a broadcast? Has anyone had experience with propagating group policy over VPN hardware?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I do not think I can help with this one. You can try opening some UDP ports on the router and assigning them I do not know if this will work in this situation.

    The NETBIOS excuse doesn't make sense if you are using TCP/IP. Since TCP/IP is the standard protocol with win2k and later I will assume this is what you are using. Are the client systems members of the domain? If they are, and the users are logging in with domain accounts they should get kerberos tickets giving them appropriate permissions as a part of the login process. This all happens with unicast packets. Also, if group policy was dependant on broadcasts then they wouldn't propagate thru routers either. Clearly, no one is complaining about this. rt

    Hi there your VPN users are not getting the rigt DNS settings ( you need to specify your internal DNS servers for your users to find where to download GPOs from) trust me on this one vpn onto your LAN and run an IP config I bet you will get The DNS ip on your external firewall. resolve this issueand you will be fine
