How to configure DNS so that Google maps can be viewed?

    Question

  • I had configured my DNS then add three websites and it is up and running...

    Next, I want to configure my DNS so that my client computer can view google maps. I tried configuring the host maps.google.com, the website can be viewed but other components of that website doesn't appear like the map itself. Does that mean that those components has IP addresses as well?

    Can someone tell me the structure of google maps or how i can make my DNS mapped the whole website?

    Google maps has numerous APIs that are called for other services within Google's network. Which ones are they? Very good question. The oners that are needed are probably being blocked by your restrictions, basically because you are unaware of them. You might have to run a network packet trace to find out what they are.

    I would also like to point out that since this is a Microsoft products forum, your best bet to get support for a third party product, is to post to the third party product's support forums. For example, for Google maps, you're better off visiting Google's support forums. Here are a couple of links to get you started:

  • Hello Lukdit,
    to answer to your question...you could use DNS Conditional Forwarders (TechNet Library reference Assign a Conditional Forwarder for a Domain Name); so if you add google.com as Conditional Forwarder on DNS Server, your clients could resolve entire domain.

    But, why don't you let your clients to resolve all external DNS queries* (I mean "resolve all Internet sites names") ? Do you need to limit Internet access to certain sites only ?

    * - You could add a Forwarder on DNS Server (TechNet Library reference Configure a DNS Server to Use Forwarders).

    Bye,
    Luca

  • Yes I'm trying to limit internet access so that our employees cannot access unnecessary websites..

    I will try using this conditional forwarder and see what happens..

  • Hello Lukdit,
    a better way to limit Internet usage is to block access at Firewall level, or implement any Web Filtering product.

  • Hi Lukdit,


    You may need to post the question in Google’s support forum as Ace suggested for further assistance.
