Windows 2000 NAT. DNS problem
Posted on 2003-03-14
I have a WIndows 2000 Server installed and 10 Windows Me clients. The Server is connected to the internet via a DSL PPoE connection. I have followed all steps configuring the RRAS with the NAT protocol. The Server has 2 Network Adapters. The first connected to the local network with an IP 192.168.0.1. The second receives its IP from the ISP as I connect. The clients are set to receive their IPs, DNS, gateway from the NAT Server.
PROBLEM: The clients can ping the server, and the server can access the internet.But no client can access nor ping an address on the internet. Windows 2000 Event Viewer shows a Warning saying that there's no Name-resolution servers locally configured. Its an event ID numbered 31011. Also there's a message saying that the DNS proxy agent can't resolve the DNS queries. So the problem seems to be simple, but the solution I can't figure out. So where do I configure the DNS servers?
the network adapters:
1 - local public network [192.168.0.1]
2 - Internet (connected to the DSL external modem) [dynamic IP] [DNS received via DHCP]
3 - PPoE adapter
