Able to set DNS given by Cisco VPN Client as the primary?

Hi,

I'm having a problem of resolving a hostname when connecting to the Cisco VPN. It is always using the ISP DNS to resolve it and it wouldn't work as the hostname is within company network.

Are we able to set the VPN connection as the primary for resolving any hostname instead of using the ISP?

Are we able to configure more than 1 DNS suffix to be assign to the client when they connect to the VPN?

The following is the sample configuration from the Cisco 2811 Router:

crypto isakmp client configuration group testvpn
key 12345
dns 10.1.1.1
domain 12345.com
pool vpn-ip-pool 
!

Thanks!

Once you are connected via VPN tunnel, you should be able to resolve the hostname if the default domain suffix has been correctly configured. Otherwise, if you have an internal wins server, you can also configure the wins server under the crypto client configuration. Otherwise, that hostname should be resolvable via the internal dns server specific under the vpn client configuration (in your case 10.1.1.1 should be the internal dns server).

No, you can't have multiple DNS suffix assigned to the vpn client.

Hope that answers your questions.
