Windows 2000 - DNS - Internet Access

By Tink56 ·
I installed DNS on my W2K server. I'm using an internal IP address scheme (NAT on the routers). My WAN people gave me an IP address to the internet. My client setttins for DNS are to the DNS server, however I don't know what settings to make on the DNS server so they have internet access. Do I set up a new forward zone for the internet address? Or is it a new host record in my internal domain under forward zones? Nothing I try seem sto work.

A lot of good resources for DNS. I've saved links to all. I still needed to call a 3rd party. Turns out I needed to set up a forwarder but couldn't because someone had created a "." root zone in DNS and forwarders could not be created. After deleting it and then creating the forwarder it works great.
