Subject: [m0n0wall] Logon to windows domain over PPTP VPN?
Date: Thu, 21 Dec 2006 14:54:13 -0500

Hi list,

I'm sure this has been discussed before but I don't seem to be able to find
it in the archives. I do find a short discussion in 2004 but that doesn't
seen to solve my problem.

First is it possible to logon to a windows domain over a PPTP VPN (using
With this I mean that the user boots his/her laptop, hits CTRL-ALT-DEL and
types his/her password and puts a check mark at "Log on using dial-up

What am I doing wrong?
The VPN authentication seem to work but when the user tries to access
anything on the network he/she is asked for a username and password. When
the user types in his/her UN and PW the following message appears:
Logon unsuccessful:
The user name you typed is the same as the username you logged in with.
That user name has already been tried.
A domain controller cannot be found to verify that user name.

I have edited the lmhosts file but this doesn't seem to do the trick. The
system keeps asking for a UN/PW.

Lmhosts:	sbb00	#PRE	#DOM:SETNORBYER	"SETNORBYER     \0x1b"

Nbtstat -c shows:
Node IpAddress: [] Scope Ib: []

     NetBIOS Remote Cache Name Table

  Name           Type   Host Address  Life [sec]
SBB00      <03> UNIQUE -1
SBB00      <00> UNIQUE -1
SBB00      <20> UNIQUE -1

Any help is really appreciated,
