Microsoft DNS Question
Posted on 2004-04-22
I have my domain controller running as my internal DNS. This works just fine. I also have a Routing and Remote Access service running on the same machine which my company uses in order to VPN into the network. Here is my problem:
Inside my network, this works:
It Replies: 192.168.1.6, which is correct
While VPN'd into my network, it doesn't work:
It Replies: A real IP address from my service provider
I tried doing a tracert on it, and it seems that it goes to my Routing and Remote access server, which is also my DNS server, but then it gets forwarded to the network's default gateway of 192.168.1.1. After that it tries to resolve that domain on the internet, which of course will not work.
I guess my question is how do I tell my DNS server that this is an internal server? I have an entry in the forward lookup zone for this server:
I just can't figure out how to tell my internal DNS server how to resolve server1.my_domain.my_company.com
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
