Access my Windows Server for DNS from outside networks? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am currently checking out how Windows Server works and have setup a DNS server on it which basically forwards all my DNS requests to my OpenDNS setup.

    Anyways, the DNS handling orks perfectly find in my own network.

    However,

    1. I was wondering if it was possible to access my DNS server from outside networks?

    2. Will I be needing to purchase a static IP from my ISP to be able to access it from the outside?

    3. Is it possible to achieve the same without a Static IP?

    Yes, you need purchase a public IP from ISP, so that you can find your DNS server on the Internet.

    Yes, the information you provided was correct.

    I would need to purchase a static IP from my ISP.

    On top of that my ISP puts me behind a CG NAT, that would need to be removed as well.
