    Wireless bridgeing and Active directory replication

    Hello,

    I have set up a wireless bridge between two buildings (building A has main network and building B has some un-networked PCs with no internet access) which will serve as the connection to the internet.

    What i would like to do is place a server over in building B to allow authentication on that side of the site and use that server for profiles etc for that building.

    The problem i have run into however is replication across the wireless bridge. It doesn't replicate. I think it is a problem of security on the wireless bridge as using replmon it says something about being an unsecure connection??

    If this is the case would IPSec over that section resolve the issue?

    If so how do i go about configuring it for that part of the network?

    Sorry for all the questions but its a first for me.

    Hi,

    How are you doing the wifi bridge? In theory, for instnace, the dlink stuff (two access points in bridge mode) is invisible to the net.

    Re: Wireless bridgeing and Active directory replication

    Hello,

    I am indeed using two dlink products mainly because they were the cheapest brdiging ap i could find. They are the DWL-2100ap's. I should have learnt my lesson from the last ones really but no...

    The APs are in the WDS+AP mode that they support and was relativley simple to set up, but replication across the bridge seems to fail. I thought i would just be security across the connection that was the problem but i don't really know if this holds true since i am not sure that replication traffic is secure in general on the wired network anyway.

    I don't run any ipsec or other means of securing network traffic other than a firewall to block any attacks.

    It is now working. The main problem i thought was security but it seems that was not the case. I don't understand why but when i went to demote the server it failed with a security warning but now it seems to have succeeded...well its started anyway, finishing remains to be seen...

    Thanks for your help.

    Thanks for that. I have flicked through quickly but looked good. Will read it properly later. I like the "turns firewall into swiss chesse" statement.
