Name resolutions over VPN
Posted on 2007-04-09
I have created a VPN server in our office using Windows 2003 Standard Edition. The clients all run Windows XP Professional. The server assigns IP addresses to tbe client from a pool of addresses. At the VPN server the private NIC is configured to use the internal DNS server and the public NIC is not assigned any DNS server at all. The internal DNS server is configured as a forwarder. From the VPN server I can ping any computer on the internal network by name with no problem at all. When the client computer connects it is unable to resolve computer names. I can ping by IP address, but not by name. IPCONFIG shows that the VPN connnection has been assigned the DNS server on the internal network. When I try to ping or do nslookup to a computer name on the internal network it is resolving to a public IP address. Can anyone help me, please??
