VPN issues
 
Hello

I got a VPN Setup, issue is, I cannot ping or talk to any other computer through an external sourse without typing in the FQDN so for example to ping host: chucknorris

ping chucknorris.work.com.au

rather then just typing:

ping chucknorris

I do know I'm missing an arguments in my pptpd_options file, but does anyone know what?

Cheers,

DaF :)

oh I forgot to add, its the DNS suffix, but I need to add the arguments to pptpd_options file, which I don't know what it is.

Do you have a "search" line in your /etc/resolv.conf"?

You can push your `domain/search` option from the VPN server configuration file itself, so that clients can be able to ping with the suffix.
