Domain and Split DNS Names for Cisco VPN Client 5.0.07

Posted on 2016-10-17
Last Modified: 2016-10-25
I have a user who cannot connect to the Internet nor to our corporate drives after apparently authenticating through VPN.  I captured a log and found the "Domain" and "Split DNS Names" values are not populated.  Is there a way to make the client populate these values?  I want to see if changing these values would help.  

Also, could the "" be blocking further routing?

chances are that you need to configure splittunnel on the VPN concentrator.

If it is a Cisco ASA device, here is the config:

access-list splittunnel extended permit ip <subnet given to vpn clients>

group-policy yourgroup internal
group-policy yourgroup attributes
 split-tunnel-policy tunnelspecified
 split-tunnel-network-list value splittunnel

for example, if the ip pool assigned to vpn clients is, the above access-list would be

access-list splittunnel extended permit ip

hope this helps
