I dont know if the VPN connections will let you look up a DNS because of a possible security issue that has with it.

You are trying to set up a VPN in the opposite way it was intended. The server is supposed to be stationary/on a network itself like in an office building, and then the clients move around the world and connect in over a secure tunnel.

What I'm trying to do is to be able to view the files I have stored on my parents system which is miles away. I did a similar setup for a friend of mine with Hamachi, but that doesn't work on mine. Besides, I got myself involved with PfSense and wanted to experiment with it rather than Hamachi.
