Here's the setup. We essentially have two networks and two servers. There is one windows 2003 server acting as a dns server. Now under that subnet there is a xserve running os x server 10.4.6 that has another subnet under it for our macs. Let's say a client on the main subnet has a dns name of client1.main.local. On the mac side of things (the subnet under the xserve) a client has a dns name of macclient.local. Is it possible from a client on the second subnet to ping a machine on the main subnet by using it's dns name? Example: from macclient1.local to resolve the ip of client1.main.local? I know I have explained this horribly, and I apologize.
