Hi we are running a FortiGate SSLVPN with Active Directory Authentication. The SSL VPN part works well but after connecting to the VPN, the client cannot resolve DNS names without including the hostname.domainname.local

Example, I cannot resolve for host1 but can resolve host1.domainname.local

The SSL VPN Network IP is not same as the local IP for obvious reasons.

Any help appreciated
