I tried to post this on 12/12, so if this is a duplicate post, my
apologies...


I've installed a web server (linux red hat 9.0) on network A. Clients
on
network A (mostly w2k, some w98) are configured to use our internal
DNS
server (NW5.1 SP6) that's also located on network A. Clients (same as
above)
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
name
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
the
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

suggestions/insight?
