    I have 3 machines in a Domain called, say, Domain. One of the machines is a NAS Powervault and runs Windows Server 2003 and a second one also runs WS 2003. The other runs Windows Server 2008. In another physical location, i have another server running Windows Server Standard and its in a Workgroup called Workgroup all by its lonesome.

    I ran a permanent VPN connection between the Workgroup machine and the Domain machines. It's a security issue with clients. Anyway, my issue is this: I would like to use the NAS for my Workgroup backup but I cannot see that machine from the Workgroup nor can I see the Workgroup machine from any of the machines in the Domain.

    The Workgroup machine is also on another subnet but that shouldn't make any difference, I don't think. I can ping any machine from the other using their respective internal IPs as they are all connected via the VPN.

    Also, every machine has the same Preferred DNS server and I also have the WINS enabled NetBIOS over TCP/IP.

    Any ideas on how I can see these machines by name from a Workgroup to a Domain and verse visa?

    Thanks in advance,
