Cannot access internet from clients through Windows 2000 Server - DNS Issue?
Posted on 2003-11-27
I have recently installed Windows 2000 Server and have configured it for DHCP,DNS, and AD. After creating all the user accounts (27), we have decided to add Internet access through a 4 port LinkSys broadband router with a static IP address so that all the users on the network can access the internet.
My problem is that I must have screwed up DNS somehow because I can only access the internet from the server and not from any of the clients. I can ping the ISP's DNS servers from the clients but URL's will not resolve and the clients' browsers end up with "Cannot find server or DNS error" page being displayed.
My configuration is as follows:
Server IP: 192.168.0.1
Gateway: 192.168.0.100 (Broadband Router)
Pushing DNS Server as :192.168.0.1
Pushing IP Addresses
Pushing Gateway: 192.168.0.100
No "." zone
DNS Server: 192.168.0.1
Forwards: ISP's DNS Server IP's
I'm desperate here as I have spent countless hours trying to make this work for my customer but to no avail.
