DNS problem Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 R2

I have just installed Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 on a server, and imported a SBS 2011 server. When I try to connect to my SBS server using Microsoft VPN, I will get logged in and get an IP-address, but DNS is not working, so I cannot use the connection.

I guess this is a firewall problem on the Hyper-V server which will not accept DNS querries to my virtual SBS server, but I'm not sure.

Can anyone give me an advice on what to do?

Best regards

Ulf

Looks like I have to solve my own problem, which I have done.

Problem was that I had not set the IP settings on the Hyper-V serve, which is running stand alone, to point to the DNS server for my Domain controller, which is the SBS server

The host can't firewall the guest as long as you are attaching the guest to an external network connection. Glad you got things figured out.
