Accessing the IPcop box on the remote network is certainly possible, I do it
here all the time. This sounds like a connectivity issue and not a problem
with IPcop. So...
Can you ping any desktop in the remote network at all.
Can you ping the remote IPCop box by it's IP address (the Green IP address).
Can you connect to the remote IPcop box via a browser if you use
http://192.168.1.1:81 rather than a name, (substituting the correct address,
don't forget to append :81 to the end).
Can you ping the remote IPcop box by it's DNS name.
Can you connect to the remote IPcop box through a browser by it's name
http://remotecop:81 (substitute the correct name, but keep the :81).
Let me know the results, and that should tell us the problem. I already
suspect the first 3 will work, but not either of the last 2. If I'm
correct, then you need to add your remote IPcop's name to your DNS. And
remember, you can't have two machines both named IPcop.
Also, please keep these posts on the mailing list so everyone benefits, and
the questions aren't asked repeatedly. Feel free to copy me directly as
well so I don't miss it, but past questions and answers are searchable only
if they're in the archives.
