I have just set up new windows server 2003 server domain. My server is set as dhcp,dns server and active directory. I have also set forwarder on dns property as my router address and isp's dns appress.

Clients can join domain and get ip address without any problem, I can share files on server all goes without problem, but client computers does not get internet connectivity.

Again, if i set ip, subnet, gateway and dns manually it works but my clients pcs are not getting internet connection automatically after joining domain. Please help

Compare the output of ipconfig /all when the machine receives an address from DHCP and when you are setting it manually.

You're probably missing some DHCP options on the scope or global config, like the gateway.
