Slow web browsing
Posted on 2003-03-05
I have recently setup a 2000 AS, with an ADSL connection using an ADSL router modem. My 2000 Pro PC also connected to the same router can browse the web fine but browsing from the 2000AS is very slow (and I'm not sure why so I'll give as much detail as poss and hope someone can suggest a cure!).
I have set DNS up as per the msdn instructions. I can connect to the 2000AS from the Pro PC no problem (although there is no record in the security log). In the app log it says this when I log on from Pro :
Registration of the DNS record '_gc._tcp.mydomain.com. 600 IN SRV 0 100 3268 nihal.mydomain.com.' failed with the following error:
DNS server not authoritative for zone
(and says it 5 times with a slightly different message).
So why is it so slow? is it dns? is the an incorrectly configured Active Directory?
My DSN window shows:
Forward Lookup Zone
Reverse Lookup Zone
I'm looking to use dns other than as a default. I have configured the properties tab of dns as:
interfaces: use all IP addresses (i'm using dhcp from the router)
Forwarders: the IP addresses of my ISP's DNS servers
Monitoring: both queries pass
all other tabs as default
If you need any more info please ask. Am I missing something obvious here?
