Mac VPN to NT Domain

MS Routing and Remote Access 5.2
Mac OS X 10.2

I have set up a vpn connection on the Mac and can connect ok to domain X.  But when I do, I can't locate anything on the domain X by host or ip.  I also lose internet connectivity.  I'm thinking its a DNS issue, but I'm not familiar enough with Mac's to know what DNS the VPN connection is actually using.  I have added the internal DNS server to the properties sheet on my VPN connection, but still don't have internet access or the ability to locate resources on domain X.

any ideas?

In your Network Properties on the server have you added the AppleTalk protocol?  This is needed to provide support to Mac clients.

No, it isn't.  I just added it and will try my connection again tonight.

Thanks

I added the AppleTalk protocol and still no go.  I can vpn in, but cant resolve names or even ping addresses.  I know the vpn connection is established because I also vpn in on a pc and check the RAS server for the connection.  Is there something else I'm missing.  It's got to be a DNS issue I would think.

I don't have a Mac available that I can troubleshoot with or find the necessary settings to change.  Sorry.

here is the work around:

using hostname doesn't work

Using host.domain.com will allow access to internal resources.  I don't know if this is by design or a configuration issue, but it works.

Please close ticket

Thanks all!
