DNS issue with VPN clients

Mach03 asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
I have a Linksys RVS4000 vpn router that's is working great.  I have the internal clients setup as but I'm not 100% sure I have the VPN clients setup correctly.  It looks as though the VPN clients are setup as pass-through and not granted with an internal IP?  Could that be right?

The client account can connect through vpn successfully, but I cannot ping the server by name, only by IP address.  So I have a DNS issue here.  Does anyone have any steps to successfully set the vpn clients correctly or have an idea as to what I missed?

I just looked and it's set to "gateway" mode and not router....
