VPN and DNS and Domains
Posted on 2004-10-20
I have a Pix 506e setup for VPN. I have the DNS setup as 192.168.1.10, which is the DNS server for all the local lan machines (and they work fine). The local machines IPs are 192.168.1.x and my VPN'ed machines are given a 192.168.11.x. From a 192.168.11.x machine I can ping the 192.168.1.10 DNS server fine but cannot ping the actual DNS which the .10 forwards to (ie. 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124). Now when I connect remotely to the 192.168.1.10 server (using XP remote desktop w/ my 192.168.11.x machine) I can ping the 64.89.x.x addresses fine. Where is my DNS problem?
Is there anyway to add a computer to a domain and then log on (for the first time...ie. no cache) to the domain while it is not present? I have added my home machine to the domain while connected through VPN but then when I try to logon to the domain (again for the first time) and it says Domain is not available offline or whatever....I just dont' want to have to hall this to the office and log on once to the domain then bring it back to the house until the cache runs out. Is there any way to automatically connect to the VPN before you logon...that way the domain would be available.
