Global protect DNS and Windows 10 Home

L4 Transporter

Hi Folks.


I run a (well, several) Global protect portals in various parts around the world, and for the large part they work just fine.


Recently, we've acquired another company, and we're dealing with some legacy assets until we can completely bring them in line with corporate standards.


Most of our PC's run Windows 10 Pro, and global protect just works.


However, I've run into an issue with the few legacy devices from the second company which are running Windows 10 Home which is baffling me.


When they connect Global protect, the link comes up fine, and assigns the VPN IP, and carries traffic - BUT the VPN assigned DNS servers don't get put into the DNS list.


Which means the PC can't resolve internal hostnames - DNS requests go to the local link DNS, and fail.


I've ONLY seen this on Windows 10 home - never seen it on Windows 10 Pro.


Has anyone else come across this? is there some magic beside "Upgrade to Windows 10 Pro" which can fix this?


I've put in some local host entries to work around it for the most critical internal hosts - but obviously this isn't ideal, and needs constant maintenance I'd rather avoid.


Thanks for any input!
