Hi,

In my Windows XP , I have some network folders.
While my TCP/IP first DNS is set to 192.168.X.X which is my AD Server's IP,
all network folders runnig fine.
But when I change my Windows XP TCP/IP's first DNS to my firewall ip
192.168.Y.Y, most network folders won't work.
How do I fix this problem?
Thanks for help.


Jason

In an AD environment, you must only use the AD server as your DNS address.
Otherwise it is asking your firewall, "Where is my domain controller?" Does
your firewall have that answer? Nope. That;s why things disappear. That's
why about 50 + other problems will occur if you use the firewall as a DNS
server, or your ISP's DNS server. If you do that on the server, even mixing
itself and the firewall or the ISP's DNS, expect problems with AD and other
problems, which I will bet my paycheck on that issues will occur.

In Summary: Only use the server, nothing else.
To get efficient internet resolution, configure a Forwarder (DNS properties,
Forwarders tab) to your ISP's DNS. Do not use your firewall as a Forward. If
you do, and that is provided that your firewall supports DNS proxying, it
only delays the lookup giving your users the perception the "internet is
slow."

Hello Jason,

Domain internal you have to use the domain DNS only. Assuming that you configure
the firewall for internet access on the machines, then you have to configure
the FORWARDERS tab in the DNS server properties in the DNS management console.
That way you have internet access and the network shares available for all
machines.

Best regards
