While on the VPN i'm trying to ping the unqualified hostname "computer1", i'm trying to get a reply from computer1.officemydomain.com, instead I get a reply from computer1.house.mydomain.com which is non existen and it's just redirection to OPEN DNS error page http://208.69.32.132/. I can ping all computers in the office network by IP and by FQDN. The problem about this is that DNS search suffix list stops as soon as it gets a "reply from" and it does not bother to go down the list of domain in my dns suffix list to find correct and real computer. I really don't want to use host file to fix this. How can this be fixed? is there a registry hack? I'm using default gateway of the VPN and also a dns server on the internal office network.

Again, I have no problem pinging the entire network by IP address or FQDN.

for a complete answer, I will award 500 points.
