I have a problem with dns when connected to my work vpn. For ease of explanation I'll use the following in my outline of the problem: - name of my machine on work network is REMOTE_XP (original i know) - ip of my machine on work network is 192.168.2.80 - name of my machine on my local network is LOCAL_XP - ip of my machine on my local network is 10.0.0.3
What I want to be able to do when connected to vpn: - browse the internet from LOCAL_XP - ping by name REMOTE_XP
Now it seems I've so far mentioned either 1 but not both of my wishlist.
If i go to my vpn network properties (on LOCAL_XP) and uncheck the "use default dns on remote network" then I can browse the internet from my local machine but can't ping REMOTE_XP (though I can ping 192.168.2.80)
If I check "use default dns..." then I can ping REMOTE_XP but can't browse the internet from LOCAL_XP.
Is there a way I can have my dns cake and eat it, or will I have to accept that it will be an either/or situation?
Thanks in advance.
