Is your PDC w2k box (or anything else for that matter) running WINS?
If not it needs to be, both for this to work smoothly and just because
it is a very hopefully service.  Anyways, get WINS running on the
internal network and make sure that the VPN clients know the WINS IP
address, either through /etc/ppp/options or set it up client side.
Once this is done your VPN clients "should" be able to browse the
internal network/find the w2k domain controller pretty easy.
Oh, and make sure that everything internal is setup to see the WINS
server too, that way they can easily find/be found by the VPN client.

Hope this was at least some what helpful, if not I'll at least enjoy
seeing my own name in my pptpd email folder.

behind firewall.

I finally got the PPTP software working on my Linux firewall, I want to be
able to connect to the firewall and then be able to login to the NT domain
on my w2k server behind the firewall.  I been running around in circles with
this.  I don't know if I need to interface PPTPD with Samba or something
else.  I believe if we get this problem solved we would be able to have a
very functional piece of software.

thanks in advance.
