External IP Entries in Internal Windows 2000 Server DNS


R

Rick Lores

Hello,

We have an internal Windows 2000 DNS Server setup
providing ip resolution. Recently, I noticed that in our
DNS server there are 2 A Records with external (routable)
IP addresses (64.x.x.x) associated with them. I know our
external DNS ip starts with 198.x.x.x

Can someone tell me if my server has somehow been
compromised or is this normal?

thanks

198.x.x.x or 192.168.x.x?

If your internal domain is the same as your external domain, and your mail
and web server are hosted, then public addresses for www and mail would be
needed for internal users to reach these servers. You omitted what the host
name was for these external records. There could also be other reasons...

Hello,

Another reason we see alot for incorrect IP's is multihomed servers and
workstations or that have multiple IPs bound to them. These will try to
register also in DNS.

If you do need a multihomed workstation or server, you can follow this
article to stop Dynamic DNS registration;
246804 How to enable or disable dynamic DNS registrations in Windows 2000
and
