I am testing a setup using Dell's VPN client NetExtender. I have it setup so I can connect to the network using the NetExtender client, however I cannot resolve by domainname..so if I try to ping a server on the network by name, or access a network resource by name, it does not work..I can ping by ip address.
If I UNCHECK "append parent suffixes of the parent suffix" in the DNS setup of the client PC, I can then resolve by name...If I go back in right after that and CHECK "append parent suffixes of the parent suffix", it will now resolve by name. If I reboot, it goes back to not working again when checked, etc.
Why would it not work when it's check, work when it's unchecked, then work when it's checked after that. I'm assuming it puts something is cache...Also do I need "append parent suffixes of the parent suffix" checked or not?
