o.k., please let me (us) know, if it works with "Free Ping".
Currently Being ModeratedOct 5, 2012 1:39 PM (in response to Tom Rock)
Yes, I downloaded Free Ping, pinged the FQDN once, and it responded. Now Safari finds it.
Wow - I wonder how that finds it but other ping tools do not?

, maybe something with dns-cache... whatever...

f***ng magic, but maybe a hint for the apple guys. let them implement "free ping" for the next bug fix release...

Just got off with Apple Support - mixed results. A full reset of the iPad Network Settings fixed this for the iPad. Under General Settings / Reset - do the Networking Settings reset, then re-create the VPN connection. Fixed the issue. Same process did NOT work on my iPhone. Possibly different settings (I have Verizon 4G on the iPad and 3G on the iPhone 4s).

I noticed a similar behavior some time ago on my [Mac | Linux box | don't remember]. It turned out that there are some programs linking dynamically to the operating system's (buggy) DNS library, while other's come with their own, statically linked (and working) implementations.
I guess there's a similar reason for Free Ping being able to resolve the .local URL. Interesting how the result then makes it's way into the local DNS cache.

Hi thanks allot. I can confirm this fixed my access to our company's site. Only issue is that didn't solve the email access.
Does anyone has a clue?

i have tried to do the same but this time instead of putting on free ping "intranet.companyserver.local" (which fixed my company site access) to "mail.companyserver.local" and it worked like a charm.
I can now use VPN again on 3G to connect to my work email and dashboard site.
only thing i notice is that it might be necessary to do that everytime you connect but it did save my ***
Thanks again and i hope apple will do an official fix for this.

It's a big problem....
APPLE What that people expect apple to solve this?

Same here. It connects to the server but after 5-10 seconds the
"You were disconnected by
the communication device.
Try reconnecting. If the problem continues,
verify your settings" error pops up.
Used to work fine before the iOS 6 update. Seems like it's defintely a bug.
I've reset network settings. Turned Airplane mode off and on. Set date & time to automatically.
Apple should hurry up with the fix.

Just updated my iPhone 5 and iPad to 6.0.1, out today. It does NOT resolve this issue. No change. It was not listed in the bug list for this release, but I was optomistic it would be in there. No such luck.
Everyone please submit this bug to Apple by going here for iPhone:
and here for iPad:

In my case the 6.0.1 iOS update resolved the issue as far as iPhone 4 is concerned!

This update resolved the problem with the connection VPN ???
