Wrong IP is resolved by the iOS app for DNS name.

Hi,

I have a VPN server that I am accessing through DNS that is managed by freedns.afraid.org/

When i am connecting to the VPN with my PC all is OK, works fine, however when I try to connect to the network with my iOS app then...

in log it appears that it is trying to resolve IP for domain (name is correct as in config file), however name is resolved to an IP registered somewhere in Virgin Islands. For instance: 199.191.50.xx. and obviously this is not my IP and there isn't my VPN server located. I have no clue why this happens on iOS. Have you got an idea how to overcome this?

When I connect from GSM or my own WiFi network I get the same result. Any clue why and how to manage this?

kind regards,
jr
