Internal DNS through VPN

Beitrag von trvsecurity » 14.03.19, 06:50

Hello everyone and sorry for my English, I know this Forum is a German one and i expect the answers to be in German i just hope that my question and answers would be ok in English :oops: :?

We have a debate in our company about the use of the companies internal DNS servers and entries through a VPN connection from home.
Our legal department (that doesnt have a dedicated IT related specialist) are saying that when this will be done company wide then we will fall under the rules of a telecommunication company (which have stricter regulations) because all of the traffic of the employee from home will be directed through the company servers - meaning something like an Internet Service provider for the employees at home.

The employees can only have the VPN configuration on the their company provided devices - so when the VPN is turned off when they are at home the traffic goes through their normal internet provider and when it is turned on it will go through our company servers.

So my question would be - is it true the we will be regulated by telecommunication laws if this is the setup? How do other companies provide access to their internal network from outside of the office? or are they completely mistaken and need to brush up on the correct paragraphs of the law?

Thanks in advance and again sorry for the english

Which telecommunications laws do you refer to?
The purpose of this law is to promote, through technology-neutral regulation, competition in the field of telecommunications and efficient telecommunications infrastructures and to ensure adequate and adequate services throughout the country. I think that VPN has no effect on that.

Sorry for the delayed reply, i didnt get any notification for your answer.
My dear legal team didnt exactly provide us with any paragraph references to the law itself and it could that they are just saying it in order to not work hard on the issue.

From the IT side we are saying that it is not logical that we would function as an ISP when we provide DNS for the name resolution of our internal server addresses or normal internet addresses when those are requested.
The resolution of the addresses would be resolved through our local server and not through the internet provider that the employees have at home.

So if the law doesnt cover that aspect then maybe we should have another sit down with the legal to go over the rules for this.

Thanks for the help :D

I think you have to ask the Federal Network Agency. They should have the right answers for you.
