    Hello group,
    I have a PIX 515E serving as VPN server for my VPN clients. The clients get
    their IP addresses from a pool configured on the PIX. But the internal DNS
    server is completely unaware of these remote machines that causes
    applications that require FQDN of the machines fail to work for VPN clients.
    Has anybody got any suggestions or any solution that worked?
    I appreciate any help or comments.

    Best regards

    I had something similar, but had two different issues. The first was to
    insure the client PC's had the domain name suffix to be appended in the
    client network properties. The other issue we had was kindof DNS/VPN
    intertwined in that we had the DNS server on another subnet which we
    initially didn't have routes to. So either we had to add static routes to
    this subnet or use the "redistribute route function" on our routers.
