two windows 2003 servers, server a can browse the internet server b cannot browse the internet

I have two Windows 2003 R2 servers running, server A can browse the internet and it has DNS installed and under networking tcp/ip it points to itself for dns queries.

Server B is configured to get dns queries from server A. I cannot browse the internet at all from this machine. I can put in which is server A and I can access the exchange server web interface.

Is there something blocking outgoing internet connection with R2?

Hi john_s99,

can you confirm your gateway address?

try adding the internet DNS ip addresses in Server B and check whether you can browse internet or not. If you can browse internet in Server B then add these DNS ip addresses in the Forwarders Tab in DNS of the Server A and then remove the DNS entries in Server B and broswe the net in Server B

If you would post an IPCONFIG /ALL from each server that would certainly help to diagnose your problem.

Pete LongTechnical ConsultantCommented:
Agreed make sure server B has the same degault gateway (as Jay_Jay mentioned above) and that bothe servers have the same subnet mask - and are utimately in the same network segment.

Server A appears to be running correctly the problem is with server B correct?

on server B

Start > run > cmd {enter}
ping server a

does it respond? if not there is a problem with connectivity gbetween the two serevers (nb all other newtork servers and pc's can talk to server A then that narrows the problem to server B or its connection.

if that works on server B open an internat explorer windows and go to

if that works then DNS is the problem (that should go to ciscos website)  -if that doesnt work the DNS is (probably) not the problem
