OK I will try and explain my situation as clear and as simple as possible.
I have 2 separate networks in my home, Network A is my family's network and network B is my "Lab" network. I am trying to simulate an "inside" and "outside" the network environment. I wanted to access files shares from one network to the other going through VPN using one of my routers as a VPN server, I am successful at this to some degree however as I can only access the shares via their IP address and not their address name.
I have connected an Ethernet cable from the WAN port on my "lab" router to the LAN port on my family's BT router.
here is my setup details:
Network A BT Home Hub modem/router - Family network
IP address 192.168.1.254
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Network B Asus DSL-N55U modem/router - My Lab router
Static IP Address 192.168.2.1
Static WAN IP Address 192.168.1.250
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway 192.168.1.254
So just to reiterate..my questions is how can I access the share files from Network B to Network A through VPN by the Address name and NOT the IP address?
I've looked around and as I understand it's because of either DNS settings or a possible NAT issue?
What should my DNS settings be for my "Lab" router?
