My home and office PCs (both win10 machines) are behind symmetrical NAT and there is no way to make a direct connection between them. To be able to access office PC from home and home PC from my office I installed OpenVPS server on a VPS machine running Ubuntu.
I configured OpenVPN server as `topology subnet`, OpenVPN server itself is 10.8.0.1, and office/home PC get assigned 10.8.0.2 or 10.8.0.3 IPs.
Office PC's name is `office`, home PC's name is `home`. When both office and home PC get connected to the VPN I can ping office pc from home and vice versa, however, I can do so only using their IPs, which aren't static and may change. On local LAN, computers names can be pinged by their computer names. Eg I can `ping office` and it gets auto resolved to office's computer IP on its LAN. When I connect office and home using OpenVPN I cannot `ping home` from office PC and I cannot `ping office` from home PC.
What do I need to change/configure on OpenVPN server to be able to reference computers connected to the VPN using their names? I cannot even add to `10.8.0.2 office` to windows' hosts file because the IP of the office PC could as well be 10.8.0.3 or some other IP address.
This is where we can discuss what we would like to see added or changed in OpenVPN.
