    Hundreds of docs like this online, just regurgitating what MS has already documented. This is useless – I can’t resolve network computer names, nor even ping IP addresses across a VPN configured like this. Another thing MS broke with Windows 10.

      Hello RP

      Thank you for replying on WindowsInstructed. However this issue is not normal, in most cases ping and other features should always be working, even when using a VPN.

      Are you trying to ping an internal computer or an external computer that is connected through a VPN? If it’s an internal computer (on same network) then ping on the local ip adress (192.168.x.x) should always be working. If it’s an external computer then you should PING the VPN IP that the computer was given.

      Let me know how we can help 🙂
      Yuri
