Dear experts,
I've used site to site VPN connection to connection two different LAN together. one is under 192.168.100.xxx and the other is under 192.168.101.xxx

When I tried to test out the web server on a WAMP stack, I was able to access with the PC from 192.168.100.xxx but having problem with the 192.168.101.xxx

I've created a host name for the web server which is 192.168.100.66 which is web.app

If I tried to access from the same subnet, I am able to run the web page without any issue.

If I tried to access from the different subnet, I need to type in the IP as in 192.168.100.66 instead of web.app

Here is example:

http://190.168.100.66/system/list.php <-- I have to type this if I want to access from different subnet.
http://web.app/system/list.php <-- I can access this or the above if I am in the same subnet as my web server.

I wish to know how can I resolve this and allow users from different subnet to simply access my web by typing http://web.app/ instead of http://192.168.10.66? Is there a way that I can reconfigure this either in apache.conf or httpd.conf, or php.ini? Thanks.

It is very simple. In site 192.168.101.xxx , make sure you use DNS server address of 192.168.100.xxx

If you have DNS server in 192.168.101.xxx , make sure your DNS records from 192.168.100.xxx are replicated to 192.168.101.xxx or create A record manually.

If you don't have DNS server in 192.168.101.xxx , you either use DNS server IP of 192.168.100.xxx or modify host file(%systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc\host)  in user machine that point your web server ip 192.168.100.xxx to web.app
