    Default Question on setting up a DNS server on Windows 2003 server

    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?
