    While going over some practice sims i came across a dns one and i forgot how you make a dns server only respond to requests from the private network ?

    thanks for any help you can give :)

    In the interfaces tab in the DNS server make sure that there is only one IP that the DNS server is listening to and that the IP of the Network...

    Eg your DNS Server has an IP 192.168.1.10 --> if you would what i said above, the DNS would only "dish out" records on that network.

    Thanks for the reply zimbo. So instead of having the dot in the All Ip addresses option i would put it in the only the only the following Ip addresses option and put in the Ip address of the private network card and not the one connected to the net ?

    Cheers for your help

    Cheers that infos really helpful - all layed out nicely in my head now heh.
    I have another question you may be able to help me with if its not too much trouble.
    The question asks if you make a reverse lookup for a subnet how do make sure its stored in active directory and updates are secure. Now am i right in thinking that it has to be an Active Directory-integrated zone to be able to use secure updates , or could you put the dot in "Do not allow dynamic updates" which would force you to update the records manually but that would be secure ...
    Thanks for the help

    So do you have to have an active directory integrated zone to use secure updates ?

    Ok try change the question because due to copyright you cant post the exact question on the forum. I think you ok so far so just keep it in mind... :biggrin

    If you create an Active directory integrated zone you can then allow secure updates... does that answe you question?

    thanks zimbo , so i was right in thinking the only way you can have a zone with secure updates is if it is an active directory integrated zone ?

    Probably best to fire up a test server and create some zones and get to know how DNS works on a Windows 2003 server, it will help you out when you have to configure a server for real. 8)
