We have SBS 2003 SP2
I cannot get any Internet access - more exactly the server (or any of the users) cannot browse the Internet.
I can Ping the gateway router
I can Ping an IP address on the Internet - 126.96.36.199
I can Ping www.google.co.uk
Exchange OK - Users are sending/receiving Outlook e-mail
I have disconnected m,y laptop from the network and connected to the gateway router wirelessly.
Same problem until I change the DNS server settings inthe NIC IP properties to use 188.8.131.52 (google's public DNS, it is my fall back test DNS IP) Then the browser connects to web home page.
Obviously a DNS issue but where to look?
I can't change the server's NIC DNS IP Properties as this function is carried out within SBS in the forwarders section of DNS.
I am stumped on this, just for the fact that with DNS problems I cannot usually ping both IP and name addresses!
Thanks for your time
