unc shared folder en site to site vpn

Hello,

 

we have 2 site connected with 2 fortinet 40f site to site ipsec vpn (with shared phrasekey)

 

the site 1 is on 192.168.1.xxx winth AD DHCP DNS SQL serveur on 192.168.1.2

 

The site 2 is on 192.168.5.xxxx with only 8 PC

 

i can ping site 1 to site 2 and site 2 to site one on ip.

i can open folder on \\192.168.1.2\data but i can't on \\server2022\data.

 

i think it's a DNS error but i can't find

Hi Luk

I think it is like this:

  • If both sites are same Window domain then there should be no dns resolution issue
  • If different domains then you may configure your local DNS server to forward DNS requests to remote domain when needed

After that you will "probably" need to specify remote domain in hostname when you request access, e.g.: \\server2022.domain2.local\data

If you have a local DNS server in site2, configure it to forward DNS requests to the remote DNS server for the queries regarding site1's domain. I think this is the best way to do.

If you don't want to do that or of you don't have a DNS server on site2, configure site2's DHCP server to assign to workgroup clients servere2022 as primary DNS, and public DNS server as secondary DNS.

In case you don't want touch all of these and you want a quick and workaround solution, just add the following line in every workgroup host in file c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

192 168 1.2    server2022

Hi @luk16,

 

So users on site 2 is using FortiGate as DNS server. In that case, you can configure DNS conditional forwarding as suggested by this article: https://community.fortinet.com/t5/FortiGate/Technical-Tip-DNS-conditional-forwarding/ta-p/196821
