I have 3 servers, 1 router w/swich, 1 public IP address, and DNS application running on the server.

Is it possible to configurate the DNS to work with this, and how do I do it?
One of servers is runing Linux, other two win 2k.

There are a couple of ways to do this. What apps are running on each server? For example if one is to be a web server and another an email server you can easily just forward port 25 to one and port 80 to the other.

If they are all to be web servers then you need to forward all requests to the DNS server where it can them resolve the web address to the correct internal IP.

No just forward traffic from your router to the machine hosting the DNS service. Then the DNS service will resolve their hostnames/domain names to their local IP address on your network. In the internet domain registar simply point all your registered domain names at the same IP.

Why? There are ca 60 domains in total, and I will divide them on 3 servers. But there will be 3 different servers, and 3 IP addresses. Why use the same ip?
