Linux to Windows DNS Resolution

By azamup ·
Hi

I have recently add the linux server with squid and used maily for browsing. my users authonticated thru windows 2000 stnd. server (DNS Venus12.com) with ADS configured.

My clients hav the prefered DNS settings of (Windows 2K Server's DNS 'venus12.com') ADS to which they can See all the local machines by names.

Now after adding linx wana use prefered DNS of Linux for name resolution of the external machines like 'yahoo.com', but the problem is when i set the prefred DNS of linx all the client can not see the local domain's (venus12.com) ADS users on the LAN but can successfully ping (See) 'yahoo.com' by name?

appreciate quick response thanx, Azam

You are using BIND?
Make sure you completely configure it. Address to Hostname mapping and Hostname to Address mapping must be configured in following files respectively.
/var/named/db.yourdomain
/var/named/youripclass.in-addr-arpa

Go through BIND documentation if you dont know the syntex of these files...

as ajt74@ asked,
you are using bind, since squid is a proxy server.
if you do not have bind installed and running squid has nothing to work with

Hi,
You must keep your windows DNS setings and add in "forward" the new Linux DNS's IP.
All clients request, will be addressed to the windows DNS and if the request can't be resolved then the windows DNS will forward the request to the Linux DNS machine which will resolve the external domains/IPs.

Answer 3 will work if you don;t need squid for
your internal web servers. Otherwise you have
to turn it around...

a)
Have The Windows DNS also resolve to the outside
and have the Linux system query its names from
the Windows DNS servers.

b) Have all users ask the linux system for DNS
queries. And have the linux system resolve all
venus12.com through the windows system.

The a approach might be better if you depend on
DHCP and DDNS on the windows side.

Kind regards,
Nico Baggus
