SBS 2008 VPN and Windows 7
SBS 2008 VPN and Windows 7
Then the other day our MD surprises me with a new laptop (for himself). The
new machine was joined to the domain and the VPN connection set up.
Today he mentioned that he cannot resolve host names over the VPN. I have
tested this to confirm.
Host name resolution does not work under Windows 7, hosts can be reached via
i.e. \\server\share fails while \\192.168.10.5\share works.
Host name resolution over the VPN works fine on XP machines.
The VPN connection on the Windows 7 machine seems to be getting its DNS
Server IP from the Firewall at work rather than DHCP. I have tried to
manually set the DNS server for the VPN connection on the Windows 7 machine
but it does not work.
Others seem to be having this issue but no resolutions have been found yet.
I am currently working around the by adding the relevant servers and IP
addressed to the hosts file on the Windows 7 machine, this works but I
prefer less manual and more elegant methods.
What is a VPN?
VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) were first used by companies to enable their employees to securely access internal systems such as email remotely (e.g. from home or while on business trips). Today they are increasingly being used for personal use by individuals to protect their privacy while online in public places (e.g. when using the wi-fi connection in a cafe) or in a country where the internet is censored / blocked (e.g. China, Saudi Arabia).
Why do I need a VPN?
Whether youre an expat living in a foreign country where the internet is heavily regulated, a mobile user constantly on the road, or just someone concerned with maintaining their privacy online, having aVPNis becoming essential.
