    hi, can anyone assist?
    I’m testing changing external dns resolution from our parent company to using the internet root hint servers. I’ve created a dns server with no zones. This server is natted behind our external firewall’s external address and udp53 is open. Just to ensure that natting is working correctly I’ve also got icmp / tcp 53 open and can ping and tracert to a root hint server –
    I’ve tried it stand-alone server (w2008r2 and w2003r2). I’ve also tried creating a domain and using a domain name not registered on the web (w2003 domain).
    When I try nslookup I get “dns request timed out” – any ideas would be great?
    Thanks in advance,
