Searching the forum, I have seen the "no internet when connected via full-tunnel to SA540 with Cisco VPN Client" (and even with SSL VPN Client) scenario/issue raised multiple times here in the past 6-12 months, but nobody has yet to post a "fixed" or "solved" acknowledgement
All the responses have been "just use split tunnel" which is not a solution or even a workaround for someone who requires full tunnel specifically like I do
I have a simple Cisco VPN client capable IPSEC tunnel created using the VPN wizard on the SA540.
--I am setup for full-tunnel mode
--I can connect to my SA540 / remote site and authenticate just fine
--I can reach devices on my LAN (by IP address ONLY) while connected to the VPN
--I have no name resolution capabilities on my LAN while connected to the VPN (I had name resolution when using a cheap consumer grade router that the SA540 replaced - no other/no dedicated DNS server onsite, only the router acting as local DNS server)
--I have no internet access while connected to the VPN
--I have tried every combination of VPN DHCP scope provided DNS servers - but no change in regards to internet access or Local LAN DNS resolution behavior when connected the tunnel
I am running the newest version of firmware code - 2.1.71 I believe from meory (but i verfied it is still the newest on Cisco.com)
Using the built-in UC560 EZ-VPN-Client at this and other locations, full-tunnel far-end/remote internet access works fine
So this issue seems isolated to the SA540 itself
For local DNS resolution, I am not sure if the expected behavior is that the SA540 can resolve local DNS machine names (Please advise)
But obviosuly full-tunnel internet access shoud work, which is the priority here for me. The local DNS resolution via the SA540 is a great to have.
--Can anyone at Cisco acknowledge this is a known bug / issue, and when I can expect a fix?
--Or is there anyone here that can confirm they have successfully created a Full-Tunnel with working internet using SSA540 + Cisco VPN client 9and if so, what version of code are you using?)
