The clients are set as
- They have an IP address from the DHCP range. The DHCP range
- The server has 2 network adapters. 1 WAN and 1
LAN. The IP address of the LAN adapter is 192.168.101.11.
clients have, as you can see with ipconfig /all, the following
DNS = 192.168.101.11 and Default Gateway =
The server has the following roles, DNS, DHCP and
Routing and Remote access.
DNS works as follows:
