Hello,

I am having a problem with the VPN DNS server. It is my understanding that when client is connected with VPN client, the VPN DNS servers take over as the primary / secondary server. My DNS servers are configured correctly as it works internally just fine. When I connect to VPN I can query the DNS servers by nslookup server IP.

However it does not work! It does work fine on Mac, but not Windows 7. Any experience / advice out there?

Thanks.

Do you have also the DNS enabled on Control?

OH yea DNS is enabled on the VPN interface in Control. It works fine on the Mac, however the DNS doesn't take priority on any Windows machines. I have now tested XP, Vista, and 7. If I do an nslookup using the VPN server as DNS then I CAN query the correct host name, so I know it is working, just doesn't take over during the connection. I am using KC 7.1 RC1, could this be an issue?

That's the same version we work with.
What we have done in the past was making a entry in Custom DNS.
And put *.ictandme.lan to internal IP of the DC

At this moment i'm On-Site at a customer and connected with the VPN client.
This is the result i get when doing a pathping
C:\Users\ictandme>pathping iam-srv-esxi-01

Tracing route to iam-srv-esxi-01.ictandme.lan [192.168.12.240]
over a maximum of 30 hops:
0 IAM-NB-01.ictandme.lan [192.168.212.7]
1 IAM-KCSA-01.ictandme.lan [192.168.212.1]
2 iam-srv-esxi-01.ictandme.lan [192.168.12.240]

the 192.168.212.x is our VPN segment
You see no probs there.

So there lies the problem. We don't have an internal DC, and no internal DNS. The firewall is our DHCP / DNS server and we have many Linux servers internal all setup in the Control hosts file. While connected to VPN if I query the VPN DNS I get the correct IP. The documentation states that while connected to VPN the VPN DNS servers take over the workstations primary DNS. This isn't working, and I need it to!
