Proper DNS Settings SBS 2003
Posted on 2011-03-02
I have a small network in an office. I have an old Sonicwall SOHO 3 running and a server running SBS 2003.
We have been having some problems with our internet lately where the domain cannot be located. Our internet speeds are 6 Mbps down, so the ISP speeds are good.
I think I have a DNS issue, and I'll try to be as clear as possible about my settings.
My SBS server is handling all the DHCP on the network. All the computers are looking to the server for DNS. The server is set to get DNS from itself. There are forwarders set, but I don't really know what the proper way of making sure those settings are correct. I often run into servers where the DNS settings are incorrect and I usually bring someone else in to fix them. I'd like to be able to fix these issues myself. Is there a good explanation of this on the web , or could someone give me one?
