I have

DSL > Pix 501 > Win2k3 server > Switches > Workstations

Right now the pix is giving out DHCP, but the win2k3 server is AD & DNS and i need the DNS of the DHCP configs to point to the server's internal ip for AD resolution.  I've never had much luck in setting up win2k/win2k3 server with DHCP server, and i've never *needed to so i've never fully gotten into it.  Basically how do i configure it for DHCP.  I know the IPs

192.168.5.1-192.168.5.50 i'd like to leave open to assign statics in their such as printers and what not. 192.168.5.51 - 192.168.5.199 be the DHCP range IPs it throws out as some servers are 192.168.5.200 and above..  i could do all DHCP and setup the DHCP server to give out IPs based on mac address with leases (i've done this before).

the Gateway will be 192.168.5.1 (pix) or can i use th einternal server ip?  192.168.5.3

the DNS server i want to be 192.168.5.3 for primary and secondary can i use an external ISPs IP or is it even necessary?

Gateway 255.255.255.0 and i believe this is all...  is there a tutorial on doing this for win2k3 SBS?

I need help asap,

Thanks,
Nick

Install the DHCP service and create a new scope.

Set the DHCP pool to 192.168.5.1 - 192.168.5.254 and create two exclusion ranges 192.168.5.1 - 50 and 192.168.5.200 - 254. Create a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.

You can either set the default gateway in the scope or server options of the PIX. You can use the server IP but would need NAT or ISA set up on it to forward requests.

You can use both the DNS addresses from your own network and simple set up a forwarder on your DNS servers to the address of the ISP to resolve external requests.
