Connecting to drives by name

  • Hi All,

    Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction, we have set up a vpn connection for our mobile staff, and have got the tunnel to create with no problems, but I cannot connect or ping any of my servers via their name, this sounds like the dns settings are not being transfered across to the clients.

    Is there a way to get this done, I would like to get this running so that our staff can run the login scripts and connect to the drives that they should have.

  • Use the DHCP Server of the pfSense to assign the clients the pfSense as  first DNS Server and the remote DNS Server behind the tunnel as second DNS. Also if you have a WINS server in the remote LAN assign this as well. This works for me for pretty everything.
