VPN works, but can only access hosts through IP. Hostname does not resolve



  • I've have Open VPN setup on 2.3.4.  I have an AD DNS server set as primary under General setup and OPENvpn

    On Client
    Opens up fine, I can ping any IP, but I cannot ping hostnames.

    IPconfig /all shows the correct DNS server

    Lan 192.168.1.168/24
    VPN Tunnel 10.0.0.0/24

    OpenVPN
    Protocol UDP
    port 1194
    Redirect Gateway on
    DNS points to AD DNS Server 192.168.1.4

    Firewall
    WAN any to any port 1194
    OPENVPN any to any

    any ideas?



  • What worked:

    It was the DNS suffix:
    On a computer on a domain, I needed to ipconfig /all, and under "Connection-specific DNS Suffix" it showed local.domainname.com

    Thats what needs to be under "DNS Default Domain" under VPN -> OpenVPN -> Servers -> edit
