"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

External or Internally?

Our server is in a datacentre that has external servers to resolve domain names.  I can ping these servers, so I need to find a way to tell our server to use them,

If you open DNS manager and rigth click on the server icon and say properties, then under forwarders you can enter your external DNS servers.

I had a look at the network connection and the DNS settings had been lost from the connection - reinstating then brought it back to life - Whether the DNS Server install was suppose to remove the settings I dont know... thanks for help this Sunday afternoon.
