    A few questions... :)


    Hi, i have a new network layout and would love some input as for the design and also have a few small questions....

    I have a ACER VTX server with 2 NIC,s setup with NIC teaming for redundancy and redundant power supplys. This is virtulizing the following.

    My Setup

    + VTX Machine (Acer) [ 10.0.2.20 ]
    - DHCP/DNS/RRAS/File/Print server [ 10.0.2.24 ]
    = Scope ( 10.0.2.1 - 10.0.2.254 )
    = Exclusions ( 10.0.2.1 - 10.0.2.50 )
    = DNS Servers ( 10.0.2.24 )
    = Router ( 10.0.2.24 )
    - Mail Server [ 10.0.2.25 ]
    - Web Server [ 10.0.2.26 ]
    - SIP Server [ 10.0.2.27 ]

    + Domain Controller / VPN Server (RRAS) [ 10.0.2.22 ]

    + Test Server ( Maybe Linux ) [ Unknow ]

    + WAN Router [ 10.0.2.1 ]

    + WiFi Access Point [ 10.0.2.2 ]

    Still to setup a VLAN for all VoIP traffic etc.

    My Problems

    1.) My DNS server and Domain Controller are different. I want my DNS server to be able to forward requests for joining my domain to my DOMAIN CONTROLLER instead of having to use my domain controller as my DNS server. From what i can see online (technet etc) i have to use the DC as the DNS server.

    2.) With the setup above.. when a client join the network and is given DHCP via 10.0.2.24, i have my network name with INTERNET ACCESS and Unidentified Network with INTERNET ACCESS. See below pic.

    3.) My Iphone.....When i am on wifi and i try to share files via an app via wifi, it appears the wifi drops out. If i ping my iphone 10.0.2.x and i get a reply...then i open an app and do a wifi share via web port 8080 i am unable to access it and then i get a timeout on ping, no response whatsoever UNTIL i RENEW my lease???? WEIRD..

    My setup....

    Any ideas on anything above is much appreciated!

    Thanks guys!

    Ok maybe you can help me with this one

    I have a cisco 1841 router and for the life of me cannot get DNS. I cannot ping google.com from the router, and when using the router as the gateway all pcs loose dns.

    The router is not the DNS server

    The router is not the DNS server
    I'm not familiar with that Cisco router or what OS it runs (CatOS or IOS) but a quick fix would be to set a default route to your WAN on your router. Next setup your DC to run DNS. The last thing you want is your DC/DNS to resolve names, I can't remember if there is a setting on the DNS or just doing it in your network connections DNS settings either way point it to your ISPs DNS IP address.

    What you end up with is a router that goes to the WAN for everything and all name resolutions will be handle by your DNS.

    Hope this helps
