VPN Split Tunnel Issue from Home Xfinity Custormer

Anyone,

I have a CEO working from home who is a Xfinity customer.  VPN works fine on WiFi.  When he plugs in directly to modem the split dns stops working to my inside servers.  You can ping servers but not resolve via dns.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,

 

David

30 views and not thoughts.  How about this.  What is the login to the cable modem from the customer side.  Maybe there is a firewall port that is on that I could turn off.  WiFi allows the vpn traffic and dns resolution to the servers.  But direct connect to the modem does not.

Thank you for the reply and the link.  It is a residential modem.  I will try to login to it and look at the FW settings.

That sounds like a plan! We also have a really awesome residential forum that might be of use, if the firewall setting throw you any curveballs 🙂
