VPN Tunnel
Hello. This is my current setup. Main office has several servers (usual web, ftp, exchange, dns) which is using an RV042 router for the network. At the remote office, I have a Netgear FVS318v3 router that is maintaining the VPN tunnel back to the main office. I can't narrow down the problem. I can't get Group Policy to update through the VPN. I have tried everything from adjusting the slow connections setting in GP editor to manually forcing a gp update on the remote machines. Does anyone or has anyone ever heard of this router or the Netgear blocking traffic, such as GP updates? Or does anyone have any ideas? Thanks! Rob

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

There should be some information in the client machines system and/or application log which tell you why the GPO wasn’t downloaded. Try running gpupdate manually from the command prompt on one of the client machines then check the event logs.

You may need to install a domain controller at the remote site and use Sites and Services to assign the subnets to the correct site.

    The only errors that pop up (this is in all remote machies) is the 1054 event (cannot obtain domaint controller....). The only information that is supposed to correct it is the Slow Connection setting in GPO. I've adjusted that a million times up and down and have yet to get a fix. I think I'm going to setup a DC on an old box at the site and change the remote machines DNS to point to the new box down there to see if it cleans things up. If that doesn't work, I will go back to using RRAS (would prefer not to, but gotta do what I gotta do). Thanks! Rob
