Network problems - DNS fault? - help
Posted on 2003-11-04
I am currently experiencing very long delays when logging on the domain from a client WinXP pc. Specifically the "Applying your personal settings" dialogue seems to stay on the screen for about 3 minutes.
I am sure this is something to do with the domain as I can log on just fine using the local administrator account. I am also experiencing delays with using Microsoft Exchange. (specifically exchange server unavailable etc, etc)
Now let me show you my current network setup:
I have a broadband internet connection which goes straight into my Gateway/Router.
This gateway/router provides DHCP to all my clients providing IP and DNS information. Clients have to get their IP address from here.
There is a Windows 2000 Server on the network which also recieves its IP address from here. This is a Domain Controller which also has DNS installed.
I take it this means none of my clients can register themselves with dynamic DNS?
If anyone can tell me whats happening on my network I would be really gratefull - thanks
