    i have registered the domain pippo.selfip.com (on dyndns) that point to my
    public ip but I want that, behind my lan, pippo.selfip.com point to a
    private ip (ex.
    all pcs of my lan are connected with a domain xxxxx.local and they use dns
    server of DC to resolve the names.... how can I configure DNS server on DC?

  2. Perhaps you could be more explicit on what you want to accomplish.

    There is no public DNS record for pippo.selfip.com that I can find, so the
    first thing would be to get your public DNS records in place.

    Category Status Test Name Information
    Parent FAIL Parent nameservers have your nameservers listed [ERROR:
    The parent servers say that the domain pippo.selfip.com does not exist. Note
    that the DNSreport only works on domains, not hostnames.]

  3. It sounds like he wants to run a basic split DNS, though you're right about
    it's current state. The short answer is, he sets the DC to be authoritative
    for internal clients, and do DNS forwarding for everything else.

  4. Sorry, sent before finishing.

    The message shown is from www.dnsstuff.com, which tracks the public DNS
    records. Public DNS is setup by or through your ISP or the site where you
    registered the domain name, such as Network Solutions or Go Daddy.

    pippo.selfip.com is an example...... as xxxxx.xxxx.com
    I want to know how to redirect a dns request of xxx.xxx.com to a lan ip when
    the request is made from a domain pc

  6. It's a hostname you registered on the selfip.com domain, technically
    speaking. It seems to be working - I can ping it & get a reply from However, getting the dynamic DNS hostname working is only
    part of the job...
    You do this in your firewall/router, which does NAT (network address
    translation) by configuring port forwarding from the WAN interface (your
    public IP) to your SBS server's LAN IP.
    Your question (above) has nothing to do with DNS. Your DNS server is used
    only for internal requests, and is configured with forwarders and/or root
    hints to handle external lookups.

    As Larry wrote, it would be helpful to know what you are trying to do.

  7. Let me add at this point that disguising things in this forum/newsgroup only
    makes it harder to help you.

    You can make them impossible for the spammers to use, and there are very few
    if any bad guys frequenting this group who would have the time to look at
    every thread for names or ip addresses.

  8. As Larry said, don't mask your hostnames, IP addresses, etc. if you want
    help - it's difficult for us to figure out what you're trying to do.

    Spell out your goals & your steps, using bullet points or something equally

    On your SBS, go to Start -> Administrative Tools -> DNS, then create a
    forward lookup zone for xxx.xxx.com with an A record that points to the
    internal LAN IP of the server.
