pptp vpn client connection - dns suffix ?

Mon Sep 01, 2008 8:04 am

Hello,

Is it possible to apply a dns suffix to clients connecting via pptp (windows XP to Mikrotik).
Each client has their own ppp secret.

Thanks ! :)

bump,

Does anyone know how to do this ?
Clients are connecting fine on their Windows XP machines, however they do not get a DNS suffix.

I assume you want to set DNS suffix from PPTP server on MikroTik RouterOS,

it could be done from ppp profile,

ppp profile set <profile_name> dns-server=

(IP address{1,2}) - IP address of the DNS server to supply to clients

I would think you should rather set this in your DHCP. Look under the DHCP Server network settings, there's an option for DNS Domain or perhaps even under the DHCP options for code 15.

RouterOS PPP server does not use DHCP to assign addresses/properties. It would be nice if it did.

Yes but the OP said PPTP, not PPP.

Unless I've got the bull by the short and curlies again.

ppp menu and ppp profiles are responsible for PPTP as well !
