name resolution over a VPN using a PIX 501
Posted on 2004-08-31
I am using a PIX 501 for VPN access to my network. I am using group VPN on the PIX and the Cisco VPN Client v4.0.1. The internal network consists of a Windows 2003 Small Business Server and Windows XP clients. On the PIX I have vpngroup statements for the internal DNS server and WINS server. When using Remote Desktop (or ping for that matter) I will get inconsistant success when suing the names of the machines. If I can no longer connect to, or ping a client by name over the VPN it will still work if I am actually on the local network. I deleted the WINS database once and that seem to fix it for a while, but then it started happening again. has anyone seen this prblem or is there another way to do name resolution?
