  • Hi Sultan Zeb,

    >>IP addresses :8.8.8.8

    Please configure the preferred DNS server with your local DNS server in client and then configure a forwarder to forward DNS queries for enteral DNS name to DNS server outside that network(such as google:8.8.8.8).

    Understanding Forwarders:

  • Hi,

    I'm not sure to understand your issue but :

    DNS on your servers must be the IP of your DNS server and not 8.8.8.8

    DNS on your clients must be the IP of your DNS server and not 8.8.8.8

    If you try to join a workstation or server to a domain, the device will try to contact the domain and if you have 8.8.8.8 it will not be ok...

    So if you have a DNS server with 10.10.10.1 your server and client which have 8.8.8.8 as dns clients must have ONLY 10.10.10.1

    8.8.8.8 is only for forwarder on your DNS settings if you want to use it (you can also use your ISP forwarder which are maybe a better solution).
