Forticlient android app no internal dns reslution

Hi,

I would ask if Forticlient app 7.0.2.0031 have any problems with internal dns resolution, because when I do ping from phone I cannot access any internal servers, I can ping using IP but do not have internal names resolution. If I'm trying to access host +dns suffix then dns request go out to internet not to my internal dns. I use the same connection with the same settings but on windows computer and I have internal dns resolution without any problems.

Thanks.

Hi,

Do you use split DNS in ssl vpn?

There was an issue with dual-stack and DNS resolution.

In Windows, the split DNS with dual-stack was resolved by disabling multi-homed name resolution.

Maybe you can test by disabling ipv6.

Hello guys,

This i my solution for DNS resolution problem for SSL VPN connections from Android client.
Open CLI, and run:

config vpn ssl settings
set dns-suffix "yourlocaldomain.com"
set dns-server1 IP_address_of_your_local_dns_server
end

This helped in my case. What is interesting, the IP address resolution for Windows clients works fine without setting CLI commands.

Best regards.
