DNS problems on Win XP machines
Posted on 2006-10-27
Good day. Recently our Internet provider changed their DNS servers and required all the accounts to do the same. Our setup before was: Primary DNS on all computers was the local server here in our building. Alternate was the providers DNS server. When we moved the alternate to the new provider server we lost the ablility to use msn messenger, email and to use the internet unless we knew the IP address of the site we are going to. By putting in the Primary and Alternate from the provider all internet functionality returned, but we had trouble with our computers access some network resources. By going into the advanced tab and entereing the local server as a third DNS that appeared to work on all Win 98 and 2k machines. Xp machines are still having trouble with local resources.....any help would be greatly appreciated.
