dns 2011 sbs

Sid_F asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have an issue with dns, basically I connect a win7 client up to a wireless network on a different range than the sbs server, the firewall is set to pass all between the two subnets both ways. I set my clients primary dns as the ip of the server. I can rdp to the server fine from the client, I can also smb by ip but I cannot resolve any hostnames on the sbs domain.

Do I need to change something on the sbs 2011 server for this ? is there some security in place to not resolve dns names if the client is on a different subnet?
