    I’m trying to find a way to allow Windows XP Pro PCs at out remote branches to login to the headquarters domain. At the moment we have about 13 remote branches with between 3-12 PCs each and a server (either a windows NT or W2000 DC). At our headquarters we have a Windows2003 domain. We’re an expanding company (with a very limited IT budget) with 2 additional branches coming later in the year. Instead of purchasing new servers for the new branches I’d like the branch PCs to connect to the headquarters domain. We already have a VPN connection connecting all branches together, this is used for email collection, troubleshooting and VoIP. Each branch is on its own subnet and can ping any other PC at any other branch, but they can’t see any other branch domains. But how do I make the remote office workstation logon to the central domain?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    If they are all VPN'd together then you should be able to join the computers to the domain unless there is a Firewall blocking them from accessing it.
