    Configuration:
    PC Network Card
    Network Card on PC set to unique IP
    Default Gateway points to DSL router
    Preferred DNS points to server IP

    Server running Server 2003
    Server Network Card
    IP - set to unique IP
    Subnet 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway points to DSL Router
    Preferred DNS points back to Server IP

    If I set the client PC to Obtain an IP address
    automatically and Obtain DNS server address automatically
    then it can no longer access the internet

    Thanks

    Configure your DHCP scope correctly, with the correct gateway.

    I am not well versed in this area. I added the server
    options and scope options 3 Router pointed to the router
    and 6 DNS server pointed to itself. The problems was not
    resolved. Were there any other settings I should set ?

    Your post was kind of confusing as to what the real problem was, I am sorry
    for not interpreting it correctly. If you were saying that you had no
    internet access when using the local DNS that is another problem.
    First let me say if this is an Active directory domain, all domain members
    should use the internal DNS, not the ISP's. For the internal clients to
    access the internet using the local DNS server, you need to configure the
    local DNS server to resolve internet names.
    Usually, this is caused by the existence of a Root "." forward lookup zone,
    delete that zone and refresh the DNS console. This should enable the root
    hints and make it possible to enable a forwarder to your ISP's DNS servers.
