Name resolution errors with PIX RAS VPN

Has anyone seen problems when using ver 4.01 of the VPN Client with a PIX? IN several instances we have seen problems where, once connected to the PIX via a VPN, a user can ping a host IP address on the internal LAN, but cannot map a network drive, or perform any "net view" commands.

Disconnecting the VPN and reconnecting seems to fix the problem.

In all cases an NSLOOKUP for the internal host works just fine, and I can ping the Internal host - the problem just seems to be related to accessing shares, etc.

If I add a static entry in the local HOSTS file on the remote VPN PC all works fine. I have seen this occur on both Win2K and XP Pro VPN PC's.

Re: Name resolution errors with PIX RAS VPN

Are you pushing a WINS server address to the VPN users?
