    Hello, guys how are you doing? I have two questions for configuration of DNS with a Router and with out a Router in windows server 2003

    I saw in a small office they have 10 computers are connected to a windows server 2003 and with out a Router (no internet connection) it’s DNS server = 192.168.0.1 and they configured just like this

    Server IP = 192.168.0.1
    SUBNET = 255.255.255.0
    DNS = 192.168.0.1

    What I understand from this is the IP and DNS of the server are the same. My question is, are they right? Is it possible to configure like this?

    2nd question, I want to configure DNS in windows server 2003 and a Router having dynamic (Private IP Address) which means that the DNS server is Automatic from ISP, right now I choose IP address for the Router = 192.168.16.1 so that, the configuration will be

    Server IP = 192.168.16.2
    SUBNET = 255.255.255.0
    G.way = 192.168.16.1
    DNS = 192.168.16.1

    Take a look this; the DNS and the Gate way are the same. Can I say that why I choose this DNS server = 192.168.16.1, because the Router is receiving an IP Address automatically from the ISP. So that, I have to choose the DNS same as the gate way address. in order to access an internet just to make it work. Am I right? What if I put any DNS instead of 192.168.16.1? For instance, The DNS = 192.168.16.100? Is this fair? Will it be work?

    Please guys I need explanation about this

    Thanks
