  • Cisco Employee,


a. Are you passing down a DNS server to the VPN client.

b. Are you able to ping from DNS (fully qualified domain name).

c. Are you able to map using a fully qualified domain name?

Let me know.

Mejdun, I have a similar problem myself. The only solution I have found thus far is to disable the windows firewall on the vpn client. I know that's not a great solution, but it works for me.

Fist thing what I did desabled windows firewall and changed configuration on Cisco VPN client. It doesn't worked for me.

I think problem server related rather than client.

a. Yes

b. Yes

c. confused

Let me explain.

I tested two server :



From Cisco VPN Client:

ping to DNSserver OK ip address Ok

ping to filserver02 fail ip address OK

after some minutes

ping DNSserver fail ip address fail

ping filserver02 fail but ip address ok

From fileserver01 ping to Cisco client OK

From DNSserver ping to Cisco client OK

I think there are some kind of firewall problems than DNS.
