how-to stop w2k server dns initiating dialup
Posted on 2003-11-18
I have a Win2k server box serving a few clients. It's set up to dial up (56k) whenever a clients requests a connection to the Internet.
Unfortunately, the server is constantly trying to connect to the internet on port 53, initiating a dial-up connection every 2-3 seconds or so to 126.96.36.199 (ns.eu.net) - a DNS nameserver (I think).
How do I set it so that this doesn't initiate a connection, or make sure that it does so only when there is a connection already available?
Also, if anyone could explain why this is happening, that would be helpful too!
