Hi Experts,

I set up a SITE-TO-SITE VPN between location A and B. The server is located on site A but when trying to browse map drives from site B to site A using UNC to see the map drives it will say can not find the location however I can ping the server, connect using RDP.  I set up DNS but using the dhcp dns, Do I also have to set up DNS on the tunnel-group of the IPSEC TUNNEL? If yes, please explain how to do it.
This is an ASA5505 8.4.

Please advise

It would help if you posted sanitized configs.

Are there DNS servers at Site A and Site B, if so get them to resolve the names in the other site, by adding a conditional forwarder.

There are 1 server at each location with different ip addressing. SITE A: and SITE B: What do you mean by a conditional forwarder? Please explain

What is the server at each site? (Windows Linux etc?)
Is each server running DNS?

QlemoBatchelor, Developer and EE Topic AdvisorCommented:
A "conditional forwarder" is also called "split DNS". It allows for using different name services for different fully qualified domain names. Server1.CompanyA.Com then asks the ComanyA.Com DNS server (on the remote site A), while Server1.CompanyB.Com and any other domain name will be tried to get resolved using the locally configured DNS service.

But that requires either setting up a sequence of DNS suffixes to apply (here: CompanyB.com, CompanyA.com), and unique server names (Server1 isn't, as it is on both sites in my example). Or you need to use the FQDN as UNC path if accessing remote targets, like \\server1.companyA.com\share1 .
