I've installed a web server (linux red hat 9.0) on network A. Clients
network A (mostly w2k, some w98) are configured to use our internal
server (NW5.1 SP6) that's also located on network A. Clients (same as
on network B are configured to use the same DNS server as those
on network A. I've verifed that a default gateway is assigned and
correct on
network B clients. Clients on network B can't resolve the web server
unless I add an entry in the hosts file.

From my workstation (w2k, located on network A), I use nslookup to
check the
rr. I get....

DNS request timed out.
timeout was 2 seconds.
Name: webserver.domain.com
Address: x.x.x.x

.....which the name and address is the correct information for the web

server. Resolution by IP address is not a problem. I've checked that
record was correct in the DNS/DHCP Mgt console.

Is there something I'm missing here? I read a document on

name resolution and it looks like dns is queried only after

all other methods are tried and then, only if you've enabled

the client to use dns for Windows name resolution. I don't

even see that as an option on w2k. Does anyone have any
