VPN and DNS plus
Question asked by Ralf Mayr - January 4 at 5:04 AM

Hi all,
i have two servers in a network with fix ip's and both are accessable in the local network with his names "server1" and "server2". So far , so good.
When we access the network via VPN (IPSec) we are not able to access the resources of both servers, only via the ip-address...
 
I made some entries in DNS Plus (running on server2) but this does not help (in Primary Zone \ Forward Zone):
network.local => type NS, TTL 10800, server2
network.local => type SOA, TTL 10800, server2 [2017010401]
server1.network.local => type A, TTL 10800, ip-address
server2.network.local => type A, TTL 10800, ip-address
 
What is wrong?
 
Regards,
Ralf

Is the VPN client correctly configured to use your DNS server (on "server2")?
 
You can check this (when VPN link is up) at the command prompt typing "ipconfig /all".

In the example above, it works if you use the address \\server1.network.local but the goal would be to use just the computer name which is \\server1
Is this possible with SDP?

I guess it is safe to say that this is not possible with SIMPLE DNS PLUS? SHoudl I look for another solution?

Yes it is possible.
 
When you use a name like "\\server1", before resolving "server1" through DNS, the operating system (Windows) will attempt to "complete" the name by adding a "DNS suffix" to it.
