Internet connection problem with single Windows 2000 server
Posted on 2007-09-28
We have a customer with a single windows 2000 server, and around 20 workstations. We have a single router connection to the internet, and we were using this to provide dhcp and DNS services. This originated from when there were only a few workstations, but we have now decided to implement this via the 2000 server. ie DHCP and DNS.
The DHCP is providing the IP addresses OK, but I am unsure that the DNS is working as it should. We have configured the forwarders with our ISP DNS information, but we cannot seem to get an internet connection.
When we run IPCONFIG /all on each workstation, I can see the workstation IP, the DHCP address, and the default gateway (which is set to the IP address of the broadband router.
I noticed that the DNS IP address is missing.
NSLOOKUP also states the server is unknown.
I can get an internet connection on the server, so I know the router is set up OK.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this?
