  1. Hi Patrick, some interesting articles here.

    The VPN for Windows 10 article works but does not resolve the DNS issues surround the UDMP and access to Server Shares. Seems to be a common issue that Unifi have yet to address even on the latest firmware 1.11 and 7.0.20. Cannot ping any devices on the network unless the UDMP is the DHCP server.

    Any thoughts on how to solve the DNS issues where the Server 2019 is the Domain and primary DHCP and DNS server.

    1. Hey Nick, thanks for the visit. Since I am not sure what has been attempted yet I can throw a few things at you to double-check.

      Did you configure DHCP relay for your LANs on the UDM Pro?
      Did you configure your UDM Pro Lan DNS to point to the DNS server?
      Have you temporarily disabled the windows server firewall and does any addressing go through?
      Do you have WINS you can also configure this on the UDMpro and point it to a destination?

      I usually keep my default gateways doing DHCP. However I setup a network similar to yours and see what I come up with if the above doesn’t help.

  2. Hi Patrick, thanks for the response. It was an odd one, but it appears that a bug in the VPN DHCP was pushing out a different IP from that of the VPN config. DHCP was set to 192.168.2.0/24 but the IP address on the VPN network after connection was 192.168.4.0/24.

    I decided to kill off the VPN completely and reconfigure and all is OK now.
