Configuring Clients to Use DNS

To configure Windows NT or Windows 95 client workstations to use DNS, complete the following steps:

  1. At the client desktop, click Start > Settings > Control Panel. Then double-click Network.

    The Network window opens, listing the network components installed on the client workstation.

  2. Select TCP/IP, then click Properties.

    The TCP/IP Properties window is displayed.

  3. Click the DNS Configuration tab.

  4. Provide a hostname and domain name for each client.

  5. Enter the IP address of DNS servers for this client in the search order of preference, then click OK.

The client can now send DNS queries to the DNS name server.
