I can connect to our intranet site via hostname (e.g. xyz.local/index.html) when I am on the LAN because (as I understand it) .local hostnames are advertised by the bonjour service. But this does not work over a VPN (becuase no bonjour services do) so I have to connect by IP address (e.g. 192.168.2.11/index.html) Is there an alternative to using the bonjour advertised hostnames that doesn't involve connecting by IP address? Would having a local DNS server running on the server or router (Vigor 2820) be a solution? I realise I could edit the hosts file of every computer/device that connects via the VPN but I was after a more universal solution that can be implemented at the server end.
