Sonicwall SSL VPN - How to make Mac friendly

When Macs are connected to the SSL VPN on a Sonicwall NSA2400, DNS does not seem to be resolving. The Netextender client shows the DNS servers, but nothing seems to be resolving like it does on the PCs. I can ping the DNS server and other devices by IP, but not by name.

So first question is how to get DNS working on the Macs?

Next, how do I go about being able to see Apple devices over the VPN? Will that work with just the DNS working or is there something I need to do with the firewall to pass along that info?

Thanks

Wow, that sucks. There must be a way to do this without editing each users hosts file or fixing DNS servers.

Installed the latest version of the Netextender and Mac's are able to resolve DNS just fine now.

Found the solution on my own. Just needed new software to address the issue.
