Hi

I am running SBS 2003 and am currently using the DNS server for all traffic. However it is very slow when loading web pages for clients on the network. On the client PCs I changed the prefered DNS settings to use googles DNS and web pages loaded a lot quicker. Unfortunatley this also routes all loal traffic through googles DNS slowing local network traffic.

Is there a way of configuring SBS's DNS to handle everything locally but let googles DNS manage external traffic?

Many thanks

All machines on your network (including the server itself) must point to the server - and ONLY the server for DNS. External DNS servers such as those provided by your ISP should be listed as forwarders - the wizard should make setting this up simple, alternativly see http://www.petri.co.il/configure_dns_forwarding.htm

Yes, use the local DNS on the server and on all clients and add a dns forwarder on your dns server, in this way all traffic is local and the server will forward all external calls to an external DNS server, to be fast, choose the DNS server of your ISP
