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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
