Cannot access static DNS mappings over VPN

I have some DNS mappings i've entered under 'DNS Host Entry.'  

 

And these three static DNS servers:  

75.75.75.75

75.75.76.75

192.168.1.1 (device itself)

 

When a SSL VPN client connects, it can resolve all internet queries fine using the first two servers, but nothing i've mapped manually will resolve.  Any thoughts?

  • O alias,

    did you enter the DNS IP on VPN > Show VPN Settings > SSL VPN ?

    There are 2 fields on IPv4 DNS.

    Yes, I have the Ipv4 DNS set to 192.168.1.1.

     

    What is the other field you are referring to, WINS?  Do I need to put something in there too?

    Check the DNS you have on your SSL VPN client. Everytime you change the VPN configuration, you need to download the new config from user portal.

    Yup, I have that configured as 192.168.1.1 and have the latest settings file.  I also have confirmed in my client (OSX) that is the server being used.  

    Internet queries resolve fine, it's just static entries do not.  I don't think it's a firewall issue because I can access LAN resources by ip address. 

     

    23:~ user$ cat /etc/resolv.conf

    O alias,

    try this:

    fill up the domain name field inside SSL VPN with a test.local or whatever and then create a DNS entry using FQDN: server01.test.local and see if it works. I guess you need to use FQDN in order to redirect the query to XG.

    Ah yes, that did it, thanks!
