I have a DNS server and a client computer in the same subnet.
The client computer A record exists in the DNS server.
From DNS server, I can ping by IP and Name of the client computer (W2K3), but from client I can ping the DNS server only by IP address not by name.

any idea why?
Thanks

Try the command

ipconfig /renew

from your client machine

Otherwise you can add the entry

DNSIPAddress DNSServerName  

in the file %WINSYS%/system32/drivers/etc/hosts

%winsys% -> C:\Winnt for 2000 and below
%winsys% -> C:\Windows for 2003 and above

Check if your DNS server has a reverse lookup zone with a NS record of the dns name.

Hi jskfan,

If you run "ipconfig /all" on the client is it receiving a DNS server in the returned information?

On the DNS server have you put a host entry for the DNS server itself?

This is a bit of a long shot but can you just check that both the NIC on the server and the client have the following in the Advanced TCP/IP settings.

ping by name issue is solved. we had to add a rule to ipsec to allow TCP and UDP ports 53
I am not sure why we can't get to internet though.
