VPN Picking up the wrong IP Address
Posted on 2012-04-10
I created a new DHCP scope to replace an old one. I needed more IPs so I just changed the subnet mask, nothing else.
Everything seems to be working fine except VPN. We're able to connect to the VPN but then get the error message.
Remote Desktop can't find the computer "<computer>". This might mean that "<computer>" does not belong to the specific network. Verify the computer name and domain that you are trying to connect to.
I noticed that the IP address that the "Routing and Remote Access" dishes out is not within our IP address scope. It's 168.xxxxxxx. I think it gets these when it can't find the DNS server.
Obviously there's something i need to change because of the change in subnet mask.
