Primary DNS address for windows xp client
Posted on 2004-08-25
At our workplace we have a Windows 2000 Terminal Serever which is connected to a Firewall VPN router. Internet access is provided by Time Warner RR Business Class broadband and their own router. All the clients are Windows XP pro workstations. Most of the users are located in the sales building which is where the server is also located. There are several users located in another building who can log into the server using a VPN connection (XP Remote Desktop). All users belong to the same domain and all have static IP addresses. The server is also configured to be the domain controller. With this in mind should the XP workstations preferred DNS address be the IP address of the server or the IP address of the router (default Gateway) I have always been confused by what IP should be entered here and I'm hoping someone can clear it up. I can supply more information as needed.
