The client may also receive the IP address of the Domain Name System (DNS) server and the IP address of the Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) server. The name resolution setting in the VPN profile configures how name resolution should work on the system when VPN is connected.
In situations where running the Global VPN Client is not possible, you can use the Dell SonicWALL L2TP Server to provide secure access to resources behind the firewall. You can use Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) to create VPN over public networks such as the Internet. 40.2 is the IP of the DNS server yes. I'm using the Sonicwall to provide VPN access only. The actual default gateway (40.1) is part of an MPLS to all our other sites. The sonicwall just needs to provide VPN access to the internal subnet (192.168.40.0/24) I have a brandnew Sonicwall TZ100, now I would like to point to this Sonicwall as DNS-server just as I did with my Linksys router (default gateway = DNS-server). Please advise how to do this (I know via DHCP you can assign the public dns but I want the Sonicwall to be the default DNS server for my network, not the public DNS). Aug 01, 2015 · when you created a new VPN connection with Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 and connected it you was abel to resolve DNS names of the remote network. With Windows 10 this does not work anymore. I compared the VPN connection/adapter settings of both Win 8.1 and Win 10, they looks equal. Apr 11, 2014 · The problem is that even after using the sonicwall wizard to create the VPN and the tunnel is established, Active Directory does not work. There is still a little more work to be done. Active Directory can work over a Sonicwall VPN. Active Directory requires DNS, no ifs, ands or buts.
For appliances supporting connections from Apple iPhones, iPads, or other iOS devices using SonicWALL Mobile Connect, the DNS Domain is a required field. This DNS domain is set on the VPN interface of the iPhone/iPad after the device makes a connection to the appliance.
VPN_dhcpRelayView VPN > DHCP over VPN. The VPN > DHCP over VPN page allows you to configure a SonicWALL security appliance to obtain an IP address lease from a DHCP server at the other end of a VPN tunnel. In some network deployments, it is desirable to have all VPN networks on one logical IP subnet, and create the appearance of all VPN networks residing in one IP subnet address space. Configuring Interface Settings - SonicWall NOTE: Group level interface edits are only available for SonicWALL firewall appliances.For a WWAN interface, GMS navigates directly to the Network > WWAN > Settings screen. For configuration information, refer to Configuring WWAN Settings on page 305.

Specify the required DNS and WINS servers IP addresses and click OK. How to Test: Use the KB ID 170505850768290 for Global VPN configuration steps and connect a Global VPN client. Once connected, check the DNS and WINS server setting for Virtual Adapter Connection in the PC to make sure it has correct DNS and WINS IP server addresses. With DNS Proxy, LAN Subnet devices use the SonicWall firewall as the DNS Server and send DNS queries to the firewall. The firewall proxies the DNS queries to the real DNS Server. In this way, the firewall is the central management point for the network DNS traffic, providing the ability to manage the DNS queries of the network at a single point. So, SonicWall is right that SSL VPN doesn't inherently make DNS records, but Windows does. Try disabling this setting for one of your problem children and see if it fixes the issue as a test. Make sure you do it on the SonicWall virtual NIC and not on their actual physical NIC: 2) If SonicWall is the DHCP server, then you have to change the DNS server settings of the DHCP scope. Change the DNS server address on SonicWall's DHCP scope. Login into SonicWall GUI. Click Manage in the top navigation menu. Click on DHCP Server, click on the configure button of the correct DHCP scope and click DNS/WINS tab. This article describes on how to configure the SonicWall to resolve internal Domain names and IP addresses. Incorrect configuration could lead to these issues: Unable to resolve local resources. Analyzer /GMS reports show internal Private IPs instead of the machine name.
