    Hello Everyone,

    Thanks for reading my post:

    I had to relocate a 2003 SBS server to a different geographic location
    (company moved to a new building). For some reason, the server will not hand
    out DNS to clients nor will it browse the web. All the clients DNS is
    pointing to the SBS server, therefore, no one can pull down email or browse
    the web unless I input a public DNS as secondary for the clients. Yes, I
    re-ran the ICW twice now; inputed the correct public dns and pop/smtp
    info(not using MX record pointer). Regardless of the company relocation, the
    ISP has NOT changed; they still have DSL with a different static address.

    FYI: All of the clients can ping and access server shared drives.

    Any help would be extremely appreciated. Thanks

    What is the network setup? What SBS version are you running
    (Standard/Premium/1NIC/2NIC/ISA installed)?
    Please post an ipconfig /all from the server and one of the workstations.

    ICW is the term used in SBS 2000 and it became the CEICW in SBS 2003. As
    Claus requests please be more specific about your version and network setup
    and post an ipconfig /all for the server and one workstation that is having
    problems.

    I've only run "ICW", not "CEICW". Can't say I've heard of CEICW. Per your
    response, I found a technet article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/825763
    Let me know if I'm on the right path. Thanks again Cris...

    Yes, you are correct Cris. My apologies, I should have mentioned that I've
    already input the new public static IP into the firewall. However, the
    internal default gateway that the server and clients are pointed to have not
    changed (this is a single NIC configuration). Your thoughts?

    address changed

    Do you have a static PUBLIC IP or dynamic?

    Have you correctly set up a DNS forwarder in the DNS server properties of
    the SBS server?
    Is the IP correct?

    If you say that you can't browse the unless the ISPs DNS server is entered
    as a seocndary DNS server DNS forwarder configuration would be my best bet.

    Try pointing the DNS forwarder to the IP of your router and/or the IP of
    your provider's DNS server.
