F5 Access Win10 Application does not support DNS

The F5 Access application from the Windows 10 store does not appear to support DNS. It does not set DNS settings nor provide any kind of DNS proxy to handle requests that should be sent to the VPN connection DNS servers. Is this planned in the future or a permanent limitation of this client?

Looks like it should work, but there is know issue with DNS. Are you hitting that?

586956 DNS domain suffix and DNS address space settings are treated the same when a VPN connection is established using F5 access. As a result, any DNS address space settings are added to the DNS search suffix list and any DNS domain settings are added to DNS address space list.

It doesn't populate the DNS IP addresses at all.

Hi Kevin

I have the same issue...did you find any way to solve this? We use static host entries, but it is not really nice that way

Static Host Entries are possible but you have to write this during your Network Access Connection.... (not predeployed with the Access Client)

I never found an resolution. Even though the release notes say it should be supported. My testing showed it failed to work.
