I am looking for a way to automatically generate a HOSTS file from the DNS server in our domain.  I will then script the download of this file to a users workstation on a regular basis so that when they connect remotely they have updated domain resolution.

Thanks

If they connect remotely, then the Dial-Up connectoid should be set to "Use default gateway on remote network" - this will fix any resolution issues.

that is one of the joys of the lmhosts file...its manual static entries that don't automatically update from anywhere....you would have a monster job trying to acheive this i think
