Can you give us some more information about the context of the query?  Do you want to query from within IIS, from a DOS command box, from a C++ program ... or something else?  What kind of information is needed - a simple DNS resolution of a name, or a more complex request for, say, an MX record?

Not sure what you are trying to do here, but perhaps NSLOOKUP will help?  This is a command that performs DNS lookups and displays results at a command line, under Windows. It allows you to specify the target server.

Ok, does this means if I want to get the NSlookup result from server1 the command:

Nslookup targethost1 server1

Is that correct ?
