Hello,

My VPN connection working.

I have a problem with dns resolution:

My server :

SERVERDATA.DOMAIN.LOCAL = 192.168.5.10

Ping 192.168.5.10 : ok

Ping serverdata.domain.local : ok

ping serverdata : not ok

Inside network it works.

I prefere do not enter manualy the dns sufixe in windows 11.

In my zyxel i have a forward zone : all to 192.168.5.11 (dns server)

Have you a solution ?

    OK, so you expected to be able to make a DNS name lookup only on hostname, instead of using fully qualified domain name (FQDN). Has it worked previously?

    I would not expect hostname DNS lookup to work other than on the same LAN subnet, but maybe I have missed something. Maybe there is a way to make it work over VPN, I have forgotten.

    Hello,

    have you tried inserting domain.local in:

    configuration —> system —> host name —> domain name

    Hi @crsdg ,

    When you ping 'serverdata,' it initiates a NetBIOS name query, not a DNS query.

    Excellent point. Configure local DNS to map the hostnames to IP addresses to traverse subnets.
