So I have a dd-wrt router connected to my cable modem. Behind that router on my lan are computers with hostnames le1700, wind and t60p. On each machine, I am simply able to do a nslookup and it returns the correct address. All is good.
Then, I connect to my university VPN (cisco client) with, say, le1700. Now bam, I can no longer access t60p and wind with their hostnames. I can still use their IP addresses, but I can't use their hostnames.
Now, this is understandable. When I am not on a VPN, nslookup (Windows) tells me the server it is using for name resolution is my router itself (which is thanks to dnsmasq, I am guessing). However, when on the VPN, the server used is that of my university.
So my question is, when connected to university VPN, how do I still access my LAN computers through hostname? I am kind of hoping that there's a way I can say "MyHomeNetwork" will always refer to LAN, and therefore even if connected to VPN "t60p.MyHomeNetwork" still refers correctly.
