I’m new to networking. I am the new network manager in a business. A few days ago I tried to change a computer in a branch office to a new one, but I can´t get the server to see that new client.

When I try net view <VPN IPv4 client address> from server, I get error 53.
From what I know (since I'm new, I think this is correct information):

  • VPN is stablished through RRAS.
  • VPN in client connects and can ping from server to <VPN IPv4 client address> client.
  • Can successfully net view <VPN IPv4 server address>. I get no errors and can see resources.
  • I am using 2 DNS servers.
  • Unchecked in VPN settings, IPv4 properties: use default gateway on the remote network.

I repeat, the server was already configured and old computers connected to this server are working correctly and I can net view them.

    Maybe your server recognizes computers by their MAC address? Or the firewall blocks this MAC address... – zx485 Nov 25 '16 at 18:50
  • Hello zx485, thank you for your answer. It could be. Do you know how can I check that? – Santiago Hughes Nov 25 '16 at 18:56
  • You have to check this in your server configurations of DHCP, DNS and iptables services. – zx485 Nov 25 '16 at 19:34
