Hi all,

     I am setting up a W2K server with 7 clients. (3 of the clients are windows 2000 and 4 are XP Pro). I have DNS and active directory running on the server. 2 XP clients connect to the domain just fine, the others can't seem to resolve the DNS name. If I ping the server from any of the clients I get a response. If I ping the clients from the server I only get a response from the 2 that connect. If I use the IE browser and type in http://192.168.0.11 I get the "page under construction" message (meaning a good connection). I would like to use static IP's and the servers DNS if possible. The router connected to DSL is a Linksys BEFS11 and the switch it is all connected to is a netgear FS116. I have already tried duplicating the settings of the ones that work on the ones that don't but...no luck.
HELP!!!!

point everybody to Windows DNS server and setup forwarders on that DNS for external name resolution.

Compare the ipconfig /all result from one working computer with the others. You can write here the result of a working and a not working computer for us to see.
