    Windows host Linux DNS - how?


    Hello all,

    Basically, I have a domain (kdc.pridelands.com) that has 4 linux machines. This works well. On a linux machine, if I do:

    From a Linux box, I get the following:

    simba:~ # nslookup simba
    Server: 192.168.1.70
    Address: 192.168.1.70#53

    Name: simba.kdc.pridelands.com <=
    Address: 192.168.1.69

    __________________________________________


    From another Linux box, I get:

    scar:~ # nslookup simba
    Server: 192.168.1.70
    Address: 192.168.1.70#53

    Name: simba.kdc.pridelands.com <=
    Address: 192.168.1.69

    __________________________________________

    So, for the most part, things work as expected

    But this is not the case for Windows...
    __________________________________________

    From a Windows box, I do a lookup and get:

    C:\Users\KDC>nslookup simba
    Server: home
    Address: 192.168.1.254

    Name: simba.gateway.2wire.net <=
    Addresses: 192.168.1.69

    __________________________________________

    basically, the domain is : kdc.pridelands.com (wanted)

    but, with the Windows box, the domain is: gateway.2wire.net (unwanted)

    If anyone knows of a way to solve this problem, that would be great. I am thinkng fixing the Windows domain so that it is kdc.pridelands.com would be a start.

    TIA

    Code:
    scar:~ # nslookup simba
    Server: 192.168.1.70
    Address: 192.168.1.70#53
    
    Name: simba.kdc.pridelands.com <=
    Address: 192.168.1.69
    Code:
    C:\Users\KDC>nslookup simba
    Server: home
    Address: 192.168.1.254
    
    Name: simba.gateway.2wire.net <=
    Addresses: 192.168.1.69
    Start by configuring the Windows box to use the same name
    server the others are using.
