How to connect Internet in a Domain

    Question

  • Hello,

    I have a W2k3 server with DC,DNS and DHCP running on it. I am using class C (192.168.1.x) for my network. Its a small network of 12 to 15 computers with windows xp pro on client systems.

    My question is: How should i setup computers to access the internet in the domain??

    I am using a switch where all the computer are connected and for internet i have a DSL connection.

    How should i physically connect my network to access the internet????

    Plz advice

    Thanks

  • Do you have a router? If yes ,

    Make all your client to point to your DC/DNS server and On DNS server configure forwarders option.

    In forwarder tab of DNS put your ISP IP address, so that all quries from clients are forwarded to ISP.

    so,

    Clinet DNS should point to internal DNS server IP address.

    On DC ,

     Make DNS server IP address as its IP address server (It should point to itself).

  • Hello,

    built your physical network as follows:

    internet > routerWAN port-routerLAN port > switch > all domain machines with the 192.x.x.x ip addressing

    On the DNS server configure the FORWARDERS to the ISPs DNS server under the DNS server properties in the DNS management console.

  • Hello,

    My question is: How should i setup computers to access the internet in the domain??

    Using DHCP, make all clients computers use your DC as primary DNS server. On your DC, configure your ISP IP address as a forwarder.

    More here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/323380

    I am using a switch where all the computer are connected and for internet i have a DSL connection.

    So, connect your DCs and your clients to the switch and connect the switch to your router.

    Don't forget to use DHCP to make your clients' gateway be your router.
