RE: DNS Issues after setting up a WAN?


The  remote side has no DHCP server.   It only consists of some Windows
XP PCs connected to the router and they are accessing the Linux Server
at the main location.

Also putting the ruclaservices.local as the DNS suffix does not make a

What I would like to point out is the fact that the Windows XP machines
at the main location are not having the same problems as the ones at the
remote location.

On your Windows PC on the "remote side", run "ipconfig /all".

Check to see if ruclaservices.local is listed under "DNS suffix search
list".  If not, do the following:
- Start
- Settings
- Network Connections
- (select the applicable network connection), right-click, Properties
- On General tab, select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), Properties,
- Add "ruclaservices.local" under "Append these DNS suffixes".

Alternatively, configure your DHCP server on the "remote side" to
include that domain in the list that's passed to DHCP clients.
