We have a Sonicwall 2040 and a couple users who live in other countries and who VPN in to our network. We have a Windows 2003 Domain controller, which is our DHCP server. The problem is, I want to have each VPN session somehow "registered" with the Domain Controller/DHCP server. I don't know exactly the right terminology, but I don't quite understand how the Sonicwall and Windows DHCP server work together with VPN sessions. I have the Sonicwall DHCP server disabled of course, but in the VPN section, there is an option for DHCP over VPN. Should this be configured? When users connect to our VPN, they get a correct virtual IP address on our LAN, but it seems that the Windows DHCP server doesn't register them with DNS maybe???
We have a new centralized Anti Virus server, and I am trying to push out client installs to the remote users, and the server won't see any PC's on the vpn for some reason.
