D-link Dgl-4500 xtreme n gaming wireless...

Specs: Windows XP, 1.995 GHz / 2008 MB
I have a Windows 2000 Server as a Domain
Contoller.

phantomworksstudios.com points to my
address with my computer but its behind the
router. I would like to join my XP Pro to my
domain from outside my network, but so far I don't have any luck. If I
connect to it though using VPN and then type
in my computer name and my domain PWS it
will join it but I must be inside my network to
join it. I would like to join it outside of my
network.


Are there any ports or anything I need to open
up or something I need to do?

Thanks

I would like to join it outside of my network.

That's not how it works.

As you've discovered, you have to be within the domain in order to log into it.

This is because when you login to a domain, you're authenticated by the domain controller. No authentication means no domain login.

Well I know its possible to join a domain out side a network. I
was on a college site the other day and they gave the domain
out saying that if you are a student of the school you can use
it to logon.

Well I tried it to see if it actually did work and it asked for the
admin name and pass.


So I know its possible


Also I notice that I must also set system Suite 8 firewall to
allow all inorder to acces my network domain from inside my
network or it won't allow me to join it.

Is there anyway I can fix that with the firewall as I don't see
any options to configure it?


Thanks

You obviously didn't quite grasp what I meant so I will try one more time....

You can do it if you have a VPN between you and the domain. But, that puts you inside the domain, not outside of it. Physical location has little to do with whether or not you're "inside" the domain. Take where I work for example, we have 5 physical locations and every one of those locations is "inside" the domain as we have either dedicated fibre optic lines between sites, or encrypted VPN tunnels established between sites. However, we also offer an open wireless network within our physical locations that gives you ONLY internet access. Which is to say, you can whip out a laptop, connect to it and surf the web but you have no internal access to internal resources. If you fire up the VPN software on your laptop, you can then access internal resources and are in effect sitting inside the building (domain) and then have to go out and come back in again.

I think the big problem here is you don't speak the language good enough to understand what I'm trying to tell you.

Yes I understand what your talking about. I have used vpn
before and thats the only way I can connect to it.

I would love to use it but my firewall system suite 8 won't
allow it unless I set the setting to allow all which ain't good. It
won't even allow me to connect if its on trusted network.

It also seems like I can't customize the firewall ether so idk

Thanks for the help btw :D

Not to be critical of your choice of firewalls but when something doesn't allow you to do what you need to do, it's generally a good time to start looking for a product that does.

There are a lot of SOHO Routers out there that do an excellent job of firewalling off the internet while allowing you to do many things including a VPN connection and port fowarding (to allow external access into your LAN). Other services provided by most every SOHO Router are:
- DHCP
- NAT
- DMZ

It might be worth your while to spend a few bucks on a good SOHO Router and then uninstall that firewall software you've been running

if you google ports to open to join domain you will find listed the specific ports in the router and firewall that need to be open to do as you desire

Perhaps this can get you started
