Cisco ASA DNS Record

Hey Guys,

I have a Cisco ASA 5505 running 8.4

Now for my VPN users, they want to access a PC by name internally, but theres no internal DNS server.

Is there a way I can create a DNS record on the ASA itself so the users can access the pc by name?

No, you need to have a DNS server (or hosts file).

What you can do is use an external dns server and put the internal IP address in a public domain name.

f.e. if you have and the PC name is pc1 then add an A record in the zone for pc1 with the INTERNAL ip address.

when your vpn client asks for the name (or pc1 when you configure the suffix) it will ask the public dns server and will receive the internal ip address.
