Hello!

Need help with connectin 2 Windows 2000 Server´s. They are on different network but they are connected to eachother via 2 IPsec configured firewalls. I can ping domain a from domain b and vice versa and if i add the ip-address and the host name to lmhost/host file
i can access the servers by name. My question how do i do (can i do it?) this in the DNS-module snapin in MS2000 Server?. Right now
i have only a Forward lookup zone, should i add a reverse lookup zone also?

I need to get the DNS working so i can get the trust to work in active directory.

Layout plan:
Domain A 192.168.0.2 (Gateway 192.168.0.254 Firewall 1)
Domain A 192.168.1.2 (Gateway 192.168.1.254 Firewall 2)
VPN/IPSec up and running between firewalls.
Ping works, DNS works if ip is entered in lmhosts file.

In each domain's dns setup a secondary zone that copies the information from the other domains dns. from the dns snapin follow these steps:
1. Expand Forward Lookup Zones
2. Right Click on Forward Lookup Zones and select new zone.
3. Enter the domain name of the other zone in the wizard
4. Select the ip address of the other dns server
5. Press Finish

Now each domains dns will also be able to resolve dns for the other domain this means your name resolution will work
network wide.

 You're on the right track.  Add a secondary zone to both domA  and domB .  Both doms should aready have a reverse lookup zone for their respective subnets.    You might also get them both talking to WINS.
