Can't ping my machines by name



  • Hello everyone, I am successfully connecting to my openvpn server from my windows client, but I can't seem to ping my internal computers by name. I have set up the DNS server option in the main setup page to my internal dns server, I don't see any other setting I am missing. So I can ping by ip address but not by name.

    Thanks for any advice in advance.



  • the DNS-entry you make on the mainpage is for the PfSense itself. NOT for the clients.
    to push DNS entries to the clients you need to the "Custom options" field the following:

    push "dhcp-option DNS xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"

    if you want more than one entry you hae to separate the different entries with a ";"
