I was asked to look at a network for a small business. There are 20 clients running either Win98SE or XP Pro, and two machines running Windows 2K Server. Internet connection is through a DSL line. The DSL line goes to Server 1 and then to a hub, which the clients and the other server are connected to.
602LanSuite 2004 internet proxy software
NIC 1(internal network)
NIC 2 (external)
DNS: automatic from ISP
DNS, AD, DHCP server
(forwarders point to ISP DNS servers)
When testing Server 2, I can PING internal clients, but it cannot resolve external hostnames to IP address (i.e. www.google.com
) using PING. Also, the server will fail a recursive query to other DNS servers. In addition, under the properties for the DNS server, it is unable to resolve to root hints server names to their IP address (m.root-servers.net to 126.96.36.199)
I am looking for suggestions on what could be wrong. I appreciate any help on this.
