Right-click your VPN connection and select properties.

Select the Networking Tab.

Select Internet Protocol and click Properties.

Click Advanced.

Select the DNS tab.

Ensure that DNS suffix for this connection is configured - it should be:  domain.local

If you have other domains that you need to connect to, select "Append these DNS suffixes" and add them.

Your VPN connection is not appending the needed DNS suffix/es to the connection.

What VPN client are you using?

I am using the Microsoft VPN built into XP and remote access services in the server.

just to be clear...  not that you told me the domain name, the DNS suffix needs to be hhfict.local.

So, do this:

Right-click your VPN connection and select properties.

Select the Networking Tab.

Select Internet Protocol and click Properties.

Click Advanced.

Select the DNS tab.

Ensure that DNS suffix for this connection is configured - it should be:  hhfict.local

Can you take a screenshot of the settings on the DNS tab and post them?
