    Man, what a pain…

    I’m visiting our UK office from the states. I installed a firewall with site-to-site back to the states. All network resources are available to my on my laptop, but the UK users still need to run the VPN client to access the US resources. From a UK machine I can ping US servers by IP or FQDN, but not by name. Here’s what I’ve done/tried:

    flush/register DNS. Hard code DNS. Added the domain suffix to the firewall. Disable/re-enable the adapter.

    The only difference I can think of between my laptop and theirs is that mine is domained.

    These are all W7 64 boxes. Can some smart person help me out here? I got about 2 hours before I have to catch a train…
