Sounds like you are using another DNS besides yours. Only use your server for DNS.

make sure your firewall is allowing all traffic within the connection.
You can also try to recreate the vpn but click on allow use for anyone.
Logoff or switch user, you will have a new icon at the bottom right, next to the power icon. You can connect to vpn BEFORE the domain login.

My apologies, missed that obvious point.
Did you check firewall?
How about adding to hosts and lmhosts??

I don't know what to check in the FW, I can ping the server.
What would I add to the host file to allow it to join the domain
