In a small after school ITC class (1 server, 15 student machines), We have a vigor2800 adsl modem/wireless router. This has a Windows 2003 server connected to it which has 2 network cards, one to the router and internet and one for the internal network of student machines.
We now have some ibooks we'd like to hook into the domain (via wireless). If I put them on the same/internal network as the student machines, it can see and join the AD domain.
If I connect them via the wireless to the router, they can see the server, but not join its domain.
I guess the windows server is blocking AD type traffic from what it sees as its internet connection.
I am not sure how best to proceed:
- Change the router/server connection to be marked as "private" in RRAS which might mean it will trust any traffic from it - relying on the router's firewall for any security concerns....
- Radically, reorganize the network so that all clients connect to the router and thus the AD server should be visible to all.
- Get a wireless router thing added to the internal network and thus make the AD server visible.
- Some other change to the AD server to allow the router connected devices to talk to the domain...
Thanks in advance, Chris
