I hope this topic is more suited here that PC forum...

I am having problems with my ISPs DNS not being as fast as I would like it.

Anyone out there running a Windows 2003 or 2000 server that knows how to set up a DNS?

I am running a Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition server, that also is running routing and remote access for the network sharing.

Thanks!

Okay I got the DNS server up. I have added multiple DNS servers in the DNS Name Servers tab.

The DNS is working finding and answering.

However how can I assign a name to the DNS's IP address...

>nslookup
*** Can't find server name for address 192.168.0.1: Non-existent domain
Default Server: UnKnown
Address: 192.168.0.1

> westhost.com
Server: UnKnown
Address: 192.168.0.1

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: westhost.com
Address: 64.33.81.135

It is working, but annoying as I have to assign a name against the IP, any ideas?
