Fixed IPs, ADSL router, Slow logins

Post by Dan » Mon, 01 Apr 2002 08:00:10

I have a Win 2000 Server and about 10 NT/Win2000 Pro
clients. I run fixed IPs because of conflicts with the
ADSL router on the network. Everything works ok except
roaming profiles can take ages to log on/off.
The Pri DNS IP is the ADSL/BTOpenworld one. If i change
the Pri DNS to the local server address then log on/off is
almost instant.

I had thought to get the server to share the internet
connection with ICS....

Can any one tell me the best thing to do?

many thanks

Leave your server be a DNS stub, but master for LAN, and run DHCP.

Thanks for the reply George
I am not familiar with "DNS stub" can you give me an idea
where to start?

1. Router to Network Traceroute Slow, Fixed after reboot

I have a win2k server, when the server is up for a while, about 24 hours, A
traceroute indicates slow access from my router to any internal computer.
Sort of like someone is downloading the hell out of something.  But that is
not the case. When I reboot the win2k server it goes away only to return
sometime later.

The only unusual software on my network is the win2k server is running
Norton Corporate Antivirus 7.1.  I cannot see anything happening on the
network.  Such as downloading uploading or access of any kind.  At first I
thought Norton was updating, however, that happens in the middle of the

Also I am attempting to retire another server running the same version of
the operating system with same cd key.  I only mention this to see if anyone
knows if there is a Microsoft protection feature to keep you from installing
Win2k Server on more than one computer.  It's been up for a week.  It taken
me that long to get it configured properly for the switch.

I have network monitor installed but that's all Greek to me.

Help appreciated.
