VPN Issue - Windows Client

Specs: Macintosh

I've attempted to perform searches on this topic, but can't find any query that fits for my specific problem.

I have a VPN server, and multiple clients that are configured and working beautifully. On one laptop however, I cannot get it to connect to the vpn when I use the DNS name. If I have the client connect to the corresponding IP, it works fine.

On the same computer, I am able to successfully ping the DNS name, and get the current ping sent back.

Has anyone heard of this, or have any ideas for a possible fix?

Add the IP & the DNS name to the hosts file.

How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.

Part of the problem is that we use a dynamic DNS service. I fear setting that statically in the host file will ultimately fail once the IP changes (which it has once so far).

nslookup name first.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

What do you mean by nslookup? Is there a way I can integrate that into the hosts file, or does it pretty much defeat the point of a hosts file to begin with?
