We have a personal firewall installed onto all of our remote laptops, which is set to allow all applications for known trusted devices. It identifies known/trusted devices by the use of connection specific DNS suffix on the network adapter. This worked fine on our old VPN kit as we could set it in the config, but since using the Juniper we can find no way to set a connection specific DNS suffix on the Network Connect settings.
This has the affect that users get lots of firewall popups and in a large majority people are not reading the message and locking themselves out.
Is there any known way of setting a connection specific DNS suffix with Network Connect?
Do you mean you want users logging in to Network Connect to be assigned a DNS Suffix ?
ie.. if I log in and ping fileserver, you want Netconnect to append a DNS Suffix so the request is fileserver.test-domain.com ?
If that is the case, the under Network Connect Connection Profiles, click the DNS Tab, there is a field for DNS Domain(s).
Thanks for the responce, but thats not quite what I meant. I know if you put all the DNS suffix into that field it will search them all in order when doing a DNS lookup with the short name.
If you do an ipconfig/all you see the Network connect adapter, and the Connection-specific DNS Suffix field is blank. What I need is a way to force a connection specific DNS suffix to the Network Connect adapter if possible.
