Mac OSX VPN Client DNS

Good day,

When I connect to any one of several ASA/Pix devices using the 4.9.01.0180 client on my Mac 10.5.6 machine DNS seems to get wonky.

I notice that /etc/resolv.conf changes (and in fact changes to the config for my home network) and drops the current local DNS and any manually entered DNS servers.

I have found no way to change this in the Client. I manage the firewalls I'm connecting to and know that they are not handing out my home's DNS server.

SOMETIMES immediately after a reboot the issue doesn't present itself.

Otherwise there don't seem to be issues with the Mac or the firewalls I'm connecting to.

Thank you.

David

David,

The Mac VPN client uses the cached resolv.conf - does the issue persist even after shutting down the VPN client and restarting it, or do you leave the VPN client running when switching networks?

Auraza,

I haven't closed the client in 6 months (well, ok...)

I typically leave it open and connect to one then the next then the next.

From your post, I'm guessing that quitting the client and then re-opening it to connect to the next client might resolve this issue?

Thank you.

David,

That is correct. At least you won't have to reboot. :)
