VPN clients and DNS Suffix

Tue Oct 18, 2011 6:09 am

Hi,

I'm using MT as my firewall and VPN server. (PPTP) I assigned an address pool to the VPN profile. So far so good, the users are connecting and can resolve names. The only problem is when they don't receive a DNS suffix.

So my question is how do I push a dns suffix to the dns clients other than configuring it in every clients. Is this possible to add a DHCP server to the MT and configure the option. Since the client pptp adapters are dynamic on which interface should I bind the DHCP server.

Another solution would be to DHCP Relay to my internal Win 2k3 DHPC Server. My previous VPN server was configured that way.

Any other idea? If I can't configure dns suffix automaticly to the vpn clients, I'll have to go back to my old SonicWall which, in my opinion is not desirable... :(

My configuration is:
RB1200
ether1 as LAN interface. (Gateway for an internal /24 ip subnet)
ether10 as WAN interface.
VPN server: PPTP

Thanks.

Nobody know how I could provide DNS suffix to my VPN users?
