workgroup over VPN
can any of you offer any advice to my issue.
i have ISEC VPN setup using 2 x TP link TD-W8970.
1 is at my house and the other is at a friends house, they link up fine and can share files, printers and remote desktop pc's on both locations.
my issue is why when i look at my workgroup i can only see the pc's at my house and not my friends? he also can only see the pc's at his house.
all pc's at my house and my friends are all set to the same workgroup name.
any info would be fab.
Workgroup membership is a broadcast and the routers do not pass broadcast data. All you can do is connect via IP address.
thanks Paul T
how would we over come this?
You can't without some fancy routers and plenty of networking knowledge.
I would create some links to the other computers and send them to all who want them.
