Hello Experts

Can someone show me how to configure a cisco router to act as dns server.
I currently have server that can connect to the internet via the router from a private ip address. However, I can't connect to server using its hostname from the internet. I believe it was because the server had not been configured with the appropriate dns settings. Therefore, I configure the dns settings with the ip address of the router 192.168.1.x. Now I need to configure the router to act as a dns server with the public ip address of 84.45.116.x.

The server is windows 2003.

You're help will be greatly appreciated.
