trouble with SBS2003 dns

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.dns (More info?)

When I use the address bar on the workstations I cannot go to the web site,
when I type in a name(msn.com), but I can get to the site if I type in a IP
address(192.168.1.254). On the server I can type in either and get to the web
site.

    I responded to your other post. What I mentioned is to check the MTU
    setttings in the router.

    Do you have ADSL? MTU issues are a common issue with ADSL.

    That's more like it, Biff. An unstuck shift key, a description of what
    you actually did and where you did it, and not a whiff of "nslookup"
    anywhere. All that's missing is the information that Kevin actually
    asked you for, namely the output of "ipconfig /all".

    Thanks for posting that Calvin. Take a look at this part of the ipconfig:
    > DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 205.152.0.20
    > 205.152.0.140

    It is best to use the internal IP address of your DNS server on all
    interfaces. From looking at your ipconfig, apparently its 192.168.16.2.
    You'll need to remove these two addresses and then only use 192.168.16.2.
    The idea behind this is with AD or even a properly configured
    infrastructure, we need ONLY to use the internal DNS server(s) addresses and
    not the ISP's. Then I would like to see you configure a forwarder to your
    ISP's DNS. See http://support.microsoft.com/?id=300202 on how to.

    Also, there are two private ranges configure on both your interfaces. Is the
    router/modem performing the initial NAT service and this machine is just
    routing or is this machine also performing NAT?

    What name brand modem/router do you have? Is there a spot in there to
    specify the MTU?

    As for the MTU settings, see this article on how to determine exactly what
    the MTU settings are, which can be the main cause (your above current DNS
    config doesn't help).
