XP DNS Question


D

davis

Hi,

Is it possible to configure XP to use a specific DNS server when a
specific domain name is used?

Example: if host tries to resolve somehost.example.com I want it to
use DNS IP 10.10.10.10, but for all other hosts, I want it to use the
DHCP assigned DNS server.

Purpose: to resolve internal VPN hosts via internal DNS server, but
resolve traditional internet hosts via standard DNS server.

You can try the hosts in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc. If it is for VPN, it is better to setup WINS for the name resolution. these search results may help,
