I have a situation in which a couple of workstations are having issues with her VPN connection.
The VPN connects but the DNS addresses for the connection are in the opposite order of what is configured in DHCP on the server. This is what the workstations are getting:
Users who connect locally in the office get the DNS order correctly (Starting with 10.0.1.6). Users over the VPN can't browse local shares because they aren't using the correct DNS server...
I even have a static DNS entry in the vpn connection for the affected workstations which is why you see the 10.0.1.6 twice. For some reason it's not using that static address exclusively as it should.
Does anyone know why this is happening and how to get it working correctly?
Server is SBS 2008 clients are Windows Vista Premium and Windows 7 Ultimate
