Cisco PIX problems with DNS on Windows CE HH only

Unanswered Question

I have four depot sites that communicate with our HQ using a 501 PIX at each site and a 506e at HQ. We not have any DNS problems with the PCs at these locations. We are running DHCP using a Motorola WS2000 at each site. The problem is with the Symbol handhelds running Windows CE. They Tcom with a server at HQ. They work fine with the IP address of the server in the tcom settings. When we try to use a DNS setting in them they cannot resolve the name.

All of our other sites communicate over a frame relay network using the same WS2000, handhelds, and settings. Their HHs do not have problems tcomming using DNS. The only difference between the sites is the PIX.

I have tried removing the fixup protocol dns maximum-length 512 command from the PIX configs and they still cannot resolve the DNS name. I have spoken with Symbol and asked if they do anything special with DNS requests and they said no. Any ideas?

I have this problem too.

This may occurs if the DNS server is not defined, especially in cases where PIX/ASA is the DHCP server. Also, this can occur in cases if the PIX/ASA is unable to push the DNS server or if the DNS server is not reachable.
