 Subject:  DNS Forwarding to PPTP Clients
 Date:  Fri, 04 Nov 2005 20:03:54 +1000
Hi All

Using Mono 1.2 and have found this issue.

If I add entries to the DNS Forwarder in Mono, should PPTP clients be 
able to ping these DNS entries and get a result?

I have found that when I log into my Mono box via a PPTP VPN connection 
and try a ping a DNS name that I have placed in the DNS forwarder it 
does not work.

e.g. ping mail.mydomain.com

Yet if I do a NSLOOKUP I get a result

C:\Documents and Settings\Mark>nslookup mail.mydomain.com
*** Can't find server name for address Non-existent domain 
<---This is the IP of my ADSL Modem/Router at home
Server:  mono.mydomain.com

Name:    mail.mydomain.com

I only have one rule that allows all traffic so rules are not an issue. 
Does DNS fowarder work for PPTP clients? By the way I have specified the 
IP I get when I connect to Mono via PPTP in the PPTP user settings.
