Problems with DNS resolution


I

Ibrahim Awwad

Dear Colleagues,

Suddenly I stopped having the ability to connect through the VPN, I tried to
trace the issue and I found that all DNS requests when I connected to my VPN
is redirected to local host '127.0.0.1'
But when I ping any host inside the network by IP address it works ok.
I tried without the VPN connection, and I noticed the same behaviour, any
unknown host, it resolve it to <host.mydomain.local> mydomain here is my
company domain, and it either give me 127.0.0.1 or 0.0.0.0 !!!!

I tried to Flush DNS resolver, reset the TCP/IP stack and reset the WINSOCK
also, nothing worked, still the same.
