HI

I have a strange problem:
First som facts our company have a Checkpoint UTM-1 firewall R70.40.  There is also a site to site VPN to another site where there is a server called vgma03.domain.se. there is two domians in our site domain.com and domain.se. When users connect true a ADSL conenction and then use checkpoint SSL VPN or checkpoint remote agent (office mode) everything works perfekt. BUT when they use a 3G ´connection they cant get the right IP adress for the server in the remote site,. if you ping vgma03.domain.se they the external ip adress of it. If we ping its internal IPadress it answers correct. any other server in the domain.se are answer correct. We haveconfigured the VPN client to route al traffic true the firewall and still it use the 3G connections DNS for the remote site server.  I cant understand how to make the 3G connection to always use our internal DNS server when its connected  with VPN connections and external DNS when connected to internet only. The server in the remote site is an Exchange 2003. Thanks

The 3G connnection will often use a double NAT type of connection and this frequently does not play well with VPN. What VPN client do your users have on their computers? .... Thinkpads_User

Sorry, I skipped past the checkpoint client. However my point stands: Some 3G cards have trouble with VPN because of the strange NAT arrangement. The characteristics of 3G cards are also dependent on the OS they are installed in (at least that is my experience with them). ... Thinkpads_User
