I have a Windows 2003 Domain Controller that I have configured VPN access on – I have put the VPN port in my router – and when I connect from the outside it connects fine and I can ping all devices by IP only and not by name. I have tried to add the DNS IP to the VPN connection but it still doesn’t work.

My router handles my DHCP and DNS is this why I can’t ping by DNS should I configure the Windows Server to handle this –

I have tried to look for a solution on the internet by I haven’t been able to find one – I hope someone can help.

Thanks
:)

Windows is not adding the IP address for your VPN's DNS server as the DNS server to use for all queries, which is why it won't work.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
