    I have tried DynDNS, and it does not work for me because my IP address includes a port number.

You can use dyndns to run 123.456.78.9. Then tell ISS to use port 4565 for web. That should work.

Error 404


Hi.<br /> <br /> 404 error page not found means that the computer is connected to the Internet, but that it cannot find the page linked to the domain name (that www.something.com, aka URL), or linked to the IP address typed into the browser (eg. Internet Explorer) address bar.<br /> <br /> The error is usually displayed because of either one of the following reasons:<br /> <br /> 1) The web page does not exist or the website does not work. In this case the web page requested will return error 404 from any computer. Test using at list two different computers and two different network connections.<br /> <br /> <ol> <li>This usually translates in one of the following:</li> <li>You wrote the URL in the wrong way.</li> <li>The web page requested does not exist.</li> <li>The web server hosting the website is down.</li> <li>The domain name is not linked to the website anymore (setting problems or subscription expired)</li></ol> <br /> 2) Your computer's DNS or network settings are wrong.In this case the web page requested will return error 404 from this computer. The same page will be displayed using a different computer or network. One example of this situation is when some malaware disables access to Websites like Microsoft by changing DNS service. If this is the case the same page will be displayed using other computers, but you will get error 404 with this particular computer.<br /> <br /> If this is the case, ensure that you have installed an efficient and updated antivirus. Run a virus scan.<br /> If that is not enough to fix the problem, try the following reset:<br /> <br /> 1- Click Start &gt;&gt; Run &gt;&gt; regsvr32 /i browseui.dll&gt;&gt; enter<br /> <br /> A dialog box with a confirmation message will be displayed. Click OK.<br /> <br /> 2- Click Start &gt;&gt; Run &gt;&gt; regsvr32 /i shell32.dll<br /> <br /> Wait for the dialog box, then click OK.<br /> <br /> Regards.<br /> <br /> Ginko.<br /> <br /> <br />

I cant update offsite dns setting


Your first step in setting up DNS for your domain is create some A records, or host records, that point to servers that you are hosting resources (like a website). So, for example, let's say you are hosting a website on a server with IP 13.54.33.21. You'll create an A record for 'www' (without the quotes) to point to 13.54.33.21. This way, when someone goes to www.buy2sale.co.in, they'll be sent to your web server.

I hope this helps!

DNS Name resolution Between private & Public network.


You do not need to configure ISP's PTR records. Instead define their DNS addresses as forwarders in the properties of DNS server under forwarders tab and flush DNS cache.

RECOVER FIRST DNS


Is there a running Domain Controller present? If so DNS info is often stored in Active Directory (A.D. Inegrated DNS Zone).  If this is the case you can just connect a server to the network, join the domian (verify DNS settings in TCI/IP config is pointing to Domain Controller) and then installm DNS from Add/Remove windows components.  Zone data should replicate from AD to new DNS server, to verify open DNS console and look for resource records relevent to the domain.

DNS


DNS is the primary name resolution service for Windows Server 2003. Active Directory depends on DNS for domain controller location, and DNS influences Active Directory domain naming. Thus, to fully understand Active Directory, it helps to understand how DNS acts as an integral component in the design of Active Directory.

DNS provides Active Directory with both a name resolution service for domain controller location and a hierarchical design that Active Directory leverages to provide a naming convention that can reflect organizational structure.
Typically, a DNS domain namespace deployed to accommodate the Active Directory mirrors the Active Directory domain namespace. In cases where there is an existing DNS namespace prior to Active Directory deployment, the DNS namespace is typically partitioned for Active Directory, and a DNS subdomain and delegation for the Active Directory forest root is created. Additional DNS domain names are then added for each Active Directory child domain.
DNS data is used to support the location of Active Directory domain controllers also. During or after the creation of the DNS zones used to support Active Directory domains, the zones are populated with DNS resource records that enable network hosts and services to locate Active Directory domain controllers.

First timer installing a Server network


Well i'm just going to start where i would start. First off, how do your machines on the network get their IP? DHCP?

Is the first listed DNS server the AD server? 192.168.1.1?

Also make sure your using case sensitive domain information when your trying to connect. It is rare but i have had that be my trouble.

I have remote software available and would love to help you fix this hands on if possible. I live for network problems ;)
