Setup DNS in Win2K for ISP

By courtney ·
I have a test Win2K network and I have DNS setup and running fine for internally. If I put the clients DNS as my ISP then they have no problme getting to the web. But if I put the DNS as my networks DNS then the internet does not work. I do not haveany records for my ISP in my DNS setings. That is my problem.

How do I setup my DNS to use my ISP's DNS for web requests?

Setup DNS in Win2K for ISP

by Joseph Moore In reply to Setup DNS in Win2K for IS ...

You should set up your DNS server to have Forwarders (your ISP's DNS servers), so when your DNS server received a DNS request it does not know (to a domain outside of your office on the Internet), your DNS server sends the request to the other DNS servers.

To Configure Forwarders:

1 - In DNS Manager, right-click the DNS Server object, and then click Properties .

2 - Click the Forwarders tab.

3 - Click to select the Enable Forwarders check box.

4 - In the IP address box, type the first DNS server to which you want to forward, and then click Add .

5- Repeat step 4 until you have added all the DNS servers to which you want to forward.

Please read Technet article "HOW TO: Configure DNS for Internet Access in Windows 2000 (Q300202)" for more info:
