Do I have to install DNS onto a Win2k member server running NAT in a small office environment? I have a LAN in the office and I connect to the NET via DSL with a static IP. The DSL is connected directly to the member server. Althought this seems to work, my system log is full of error messages saying no name server identified. It appears as though all the users can access the NET and the LAN resources just fine.
I'm assuming that you configured your clients to point at your ISP's DNS server. Did you do the same for the NAT server? The public interface is probably configured for DHCP, which means it would get its DNS settings from the DSL provider. You should configure the private interface to point at the same name servers.
