 WatchGuard Mobile VPN with IPSec client for macOS does not use Firebox global DNS

Products: Firebox & XTM
Operating System: 12.x
Issue Status: Open
Tracking ID: FBX-17114
Status: Open
Resolved In:
If the Firebox is configured to assign global DNS, when users connect with the WatchGuard Mobile VPN with IPSec client for macOS, the client does not use the assigned DNS servers from the Firebox.
The client will use Firebox-assigned DNS server if you configure the DNS servers in the Mobile VPN with IPSec profile. For instructions, see Configure DNS and WINS Servers for Mobile VPN with IPSec.
