Has anyone figured out how to be able to get the internal LAN hostnames to resolve when connected to the IPSec VPN?  Running a Zyxel USG40.  I  have a domain controller on site that handles DHCP and DNS with local IP, so I tell the Zywall VPN client that is my DNS server.  But I still can't ping the computers on the network by hostname, only IP.  Oddly enough, if i do ping -a <ip address>, it will resolve the hostname, and then I can ping that computer by hostname... but only one that I have used ping -a with.  In addition, I can't see the computers on my network when I try to browse in Windows 10, which I would like to do to access shared folders.
