However, and based on your posting just now, my assumption must be wrong (I think).
    Sorry, I completley mis-read the posting. Nothing has changed, and your windows box is still not auto-appending the domain stuff and thus not submitting the proper long name for reverse lookup. Conclusion: My ipconfig /all output is more like what is needed. Post your dhcpd.conf file, and make sure it contains a line like this (but for your domain):
    Code:
    option domain-name "smythies.com";

    Okay, its all fixed. Everything is displaying the correct output.

    Promise me you won't laugh???

    Point to note: When testing the local machine on a LAN to ensure it resolves to the local DNS make sure you disconnect that machine from the VPN service especially if that service is using its own DNS
