Network problem with windows 2012 DNS

kostbad used Ask the Experts™
I have hardware VPN with two draytek routers. ip on one side and on the remote side.

My dns server (windows 2012) is set on the 192.168.1.Χ network.

If i try nslookup on the remote location ( i get good results: (dns)  and i also get the domain name.

If i try nslookup in the 192.168.1. X network is get "non existent domain"!

I'm able to ping the dns server and i'm also able to ping to FQDN.

Any possible solutions? Any recommendation on what to look?

What is returned when you PING "" from the 192.168.1.x network?


server:  ( is the internet provider, not my domain name or my ip!)
address: fe80::1

** cant' find (non existent domain)
I found the solution.

My ISP was handing out version 6 ip's and somehow this got into my network.

At first i disabled ipv6 from my router. Afterwards i also disabled ipv6 from both server and clients.
Strangely only the last (from the clients) totally solved my problem... or maybe a few resets were needed for the settings, i can't really be sure of that.
