Connecting via Cisco VPN Client.
I don't get any dns information on this connection, it says in the settings for DNS that it should obtain information automatically. It doesn't.
If I type in my dns server manually after connecting the vpn, it works.

I guess it is a setting in the firewall.

Yes, you need to define the DNS server IP address on VPN server/PIX firewall/router etc.

vpngroup GROUP_NAME dns-server x.x.x.x

This will assign a DNS server for given vpn group on PIX.

Found one error.
The group name was case sensitive, corrected the name in the client, now the dns server is set up in my connection,
but I still can't ping/connect to hostnames, only IP's

Try pinging the DNS server first.

Then from command prompt.

nslookup Server_NAME

See what it shows.
