DNS configuration between domains

Posted on 2009-03-30

I am using VPN to connect to domain A from a workstation residing on domain B. When the VPN connection is established, the workstation can access the DNS records on domain A, but cannot access DNS records on its parent domain B.

How can I make the domain B DNS zone available? What do I need to configure at domain A DC?

There is a secuirty risk, as you have a door open to your VPN for an attacker via the Internet - explained - config example on an Cisco ASA - not sure what you have.
