Re: DNS not updating after connecting to VPN on MAC

are you seeing failure when you use the full name as well as the short name?
if you issue scutil --dns in terminal, are you seeing the servers listed?

Re: DNS not updating after connecting to VPN on MAC

when i try to communicate on IP address it is working. But as soon as i type FQDN it wont resolve. On few domain are resolved only on Full domain name as in the backend there is HAProxy which resolve and redirects so i wont use ip for that.

when i type scutil --dns in terminal

i can see my vpn dns as Resolver #3
