I am connecting to a server at another location, I cannot access network shares by hostname (\server\share). I decided to ping the server to see if I could reach it, no luck. Pinged by IP and got a response, same with fully qualified domain name. I can access by hostname if I add the server to my hosts file.
The server I am connecting to is my DNS server, I am connecting over a Sophos Astaro SSL VPN. The VPN connects fine, ipconfig /all shows the correct DNS settings.
I can also ping by hostname locally which leads me to think that the issues lies in the Astaro device.
I need to be able to access these shares by hostname, all of my users are configured to use hostname.
I feel like this is a simple issue, I have just been banging my head against the desk, I think I am burnt out.
Does anyone have any information that might point me in the right direction?
