Using Recast RCT when name resolution is not available


With our VPN (fortigate) we don't have name resolution. From the VPN to network computer, name resolution is working but not from Network to VPN or VPN to VPN. This means, it is not possible running Recast from SCCM console as the name resolution is not working. We are always getting a message "computer is not on"

Each time a computer is connecting the firewall is giving a new IP Address so the IP Address is changing frequently.

It would be interesting having a way to set an IP address instead using the computername.

    You could try using Recast Agent on those devices. As the device connects to VPN, Recast Agent will connect to Recast Management Server and not rely on DNS for name resolution.
