I have rebuilt my machine and in order to add it to the work domain, I guess I need to actually go to work and connect to the network physically to to it.
This is a real pain!
I have vpn access via a cisco client using a Cisco PIX at work. I can actually connect to our domain controller by IP - ftp works, http works, svn works and so does remote desktop.
I have tried to add my machine to the domain while the vpn connection is up but it does not work when I put the domain name in - it just can't find it.
Is it actually possible to tell my windows 7 machine (when the vpn connection is up) that the IP that our domain controller that lives at 192.168.0.1 is the domain controller and help it connect and authenticate?
(I have a username/password pair that will entitle me to add my machine to the domain but I just can't work out how to tell my pc to see the controller over VPN)
