  • 3. DNS Problem with Win XP Pro
    Hi I am having an issue with win xp pro seeing my dns server on my network. It seems that when i setup dhcp and after configuring my gateway for my internet and my dns settings. my xp workstations logon into the network slowly, when my server dns is secondary to my ISP's dns, it seems in order for the workstations to see the internet i have to set the Isp's DNS first- now the network pc client does login the network but it takes longer than a normal logon should. but if i obviously setup dhcp with my network local dns server as primary in my list they login quickly but i cannot see the internet at all. this only happens with my xp clients. is there anything that i can do to tweak or change in xp or my server config.
  • 4. unmountable boot drive
