On the road I need to sync my phone with my work PC to get internal mails.
I connect to my corporate network via direct dial in on an corporate RAS server, so my smartphone is directly connected to my corporate network.
Now it should be able to sync with my Outlook via TCP/IP.
(Works fine with my iPAQ, where I set the IP in HKLMCommTcpipHosts.)
The Smartphone starts syncing and ActiveSync (on smartphone) tries to resolve my workstation Name ("workpc") via DNS to get it's IP adress and here's the point:
My work PC's network name is "workpc.mycompany.de".
Because the smartphone does not know the network domain, ActiveSync is looking for a machine named "workpc" (with no network domain), which can't be resolved by DNS. (I checked the DNS logfiles.)
I need a way to tell either...
- my Smartphone the direct IP of "workpc" (wich was an entry in protected HKLMCommTcpipHosts or a hosts file)
- the corporate W2K DNS server to resolve "workpc" without network domain (which I failed due to limited DNS knowlegde)
- the corporate linux secondary DNS server to resolve "workpc" without network domain (which I also fail due to limited knowlegde)
- my Smartphone the network domain it is dialing in
RAS dialup has an entry for the dialup domain name, but the Windows domain is named "mycompanyde" (no dot). If "mycompany.de" is added as dialup domain, login fails :?. I'm even not shure if this would solve the problem.
Monolithix, thanks for your help.
