How can I configure the default DNS suffix for a VPN connection
Posted on 2011-03-01
We have a Forefront TMG gateway which staff use to make a VPN connection to the office network. When on VPN, it is only possible to access computers on the network using the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) and not just the hostname. I notice that the DNS Suffix for the VPN connection on my computer is not defined. If I set it to our domain, I am able to access computers by hostname. Is there a way to configure the TMG server/DHCP server such that the DNS suffix is assigned for all VPN client connections?
Or, is there a way to configure our DNS server to automatically append our domain suffix for any non-FQDN requests?
