have a mind boggling situation here I have a public domain setup to be accessed from all around the world. the server is win 2000 advanced server with AD domain setup "" with local ip address of & Static configuration. DNS is setup with forwarder to point to our ISP DNS. We have T1 connection with Cisco router & HP switch 80 port gig. The NAT settings were done to allow all ports for the process of DNS from public ip of though the router which handles DHCP for all domains.

with that been said, some of the pcs can join the network when using the public dns ip, but some come back an error "included in screenshot sever_error". some join the domain just fine. However, i was looking at dns & seen "screenshot server_error_dns"

Any help would be appreciated
