Read it all. Its all clear now.
So, I finally make it work perfectly.
My PDC at 192.168.0.1 in 192.168.0.x network acts now also as a WINS server.
The foreign 192.168.1.1 windows 2K uses 192.168.1.253 gateway to connect
to the internet provider. This provider carry on MPLS VPN functionality.
The foreign PC has 192.168.0.1 as 1ary DNS (Bind) and 212.... as 2nd DNS
(providers' firts DNS). It has ALSO 192.168.0.1 as WINS server.
My provider had to unlock both 192.168.0.253 and 192.168.1.253 routers:
they lock NetBIOS requests in default mode!
Now the foreign PC is authenticated by the PDC, and ca work with its
personal and common samba shares
I promise I'll give money to samba.org when I'll get rich one day :-)
Finaly, I'm writing an article to put in my website to detail all to be
done when creating such a VPN with Samba in the middle.
Will post here when doc is done and published in my site.
