Hello Experts, I am providing internet to a school (150P-PC)via VSAT link here in Africa,  I have a W2K server that is configured with DHCP, I use my ISP DNS to resolve client request.  I have been tasked to add a DNS that that resolves all clients request by passing ISP dns. Is a simple network consisting of a server with 2 NIC , one with routable 216.XX.XX.XX IP address, the other NIC a private 192.168.XX.XX  and all clients have that same class,  no Active Directory, no registered name (abc123.com)  just simple DNS. thanks.

A DNS server accepts name resolution requests and returns the associated
IP address. Windows NT Server, Windows 2000 Server, and Windows .NET
Server all have DNS services that allow them to act as DNS servers. Windows
2000 Professional, however, does not.

If you need just a simple DNS, a handful of third-party DNS server applications can be used.
JH Software's Simple DNS Plus (http://www.jhsoft.com) is one of these.

you also need to consider potential changes to your firewall. Specifically, if the DNS server sits on a private subnet and the firewall uses port mapping to direct traffic, you should configure the firewall to forward port 53 to your DNS server.

in fact, i think the simplest way for you is just to configure your dhcp server to assign dhcp clients's dns setting to another dns server on ther internet, certainly no the one of your isp you mentioned, just another one near you. thanks ok.

also, you can setup a dns server by yourself, with the built-in dns server of w2k. it should works well too, but you have to setup it, to assign its upstream dns server or just forward all the requests to the root dns servers.

i certainly suggest you just do a bit things on your dhcp server to solve your problem, simple and efficient.

hope it helps,
