Server 2003 DNS Forwarding?

Posted on 2006-05-08
Last Modified: 2010-04-18
I am setting up a test network which will include a couple DCs, Exchange Server, SQL Servers and a few workstations.  I have my PDC multihomed and routing out to the internet, but I want to be able to reach the internet from all other machines on the network.  How do I setup the forwarding to do so?

Thanks in advance for any help.

    open the dns console on the routing DC , go to the properties of the DNS server and add the ip-address of your broadband router in the list of Forwarders on the Forwarders Tab.
    That should do the trick , by default your broadband router should act as a DNS relay. If not , you can try adding your ISP's DNS server on the list of forwarders instead.

    Make sure that the clients that have to access Internet through the routing DC have the DC listed as DNS-server in the properties of the IP-protocol.

    Good luck
