I have successfully setup UT with OpenVPN and can connect and see the internal network by IP address. The internal network is setup with UT as the DHCP server and the DNS server. The internal DNS has the domain of .local. Several machines are setup with static DNS.
When accessing the VPN with Linux. the /etc/resolv.conf file details what the VPN server is sending the client for DNS information. For some reason. the domain is being listed as gateway.2wire.com, not .local. Why would this be the case? What is more, is that the DNS server is unable to resolve any of the hosts in the .local domain.
This is the critical problem, that I cannot contact any internal machine by hostname. I even tried overriding the DNS settings in the OpenVPN Advanced tab to use the existing DNS server, but the setting seemed to be ignored. The VPN still sent the same address for the UT default DNS server, 192.168.2.1. Again, this can be seen in the /etc/resolv.conf file.
Any ideas, tips or questions welcome.
