    I have 2 routers running Toastman 1.28.7503.5. IP of 1st router is, IP of second router is The second router is setup as a PPTP Server, and the first router connects to it.

    I can ping address on the 192.168.20.x network, but if I try and ping the hostnames I get no response.
    What weird is if I tracert the IP addresses I get the hostname in the results.

    Also when I browse the SMB network I cannot see any deviced on the remote network.

    What configuration do I need to set to get SMB and Hostname to show up.

    Sounds like perhaps a DNSMasq issue? On Advanced -> DHCP/DNS, try this:

    1. Uncheck the Prevent DNS Rebind Attacks checkbox
    2. In the Advanced box, add the following:
    • interface=ppp1,ppp2,ppp3,ppp4,ppp5,ppp6
    • no-dhcp-interface=ppp1,ppp2,ppp3,ppp4,ppp5,ppp6

    I'm not sure which version of Toastman that is - might be old. Consider upgrading.
