comment Windows 2003 DNS server - only answer external requests for our domains?
Obviously not the answer I wanted, but since it is probably correct (who am I to doubt someone with a 5 digit reputation?), then that is the way it is.. :) Thanks!

Argh, I am brain damaged today - I meant DNS, not FTP. :(

Yep, if I do an nslookup it can find itself, at the correct local IP.

Hi - pinging is no problem; Works on ip, hostname, and fully qualified hostname (i.e. 192.168.1.9, dc01, and dc01.mydomain.local). The nslookup gave a reply showing both servers (dc01 and dc02). The same query worked fine for _msdcs.mydomain.local too, but returned errors for the other three (_sites, _tcp and _udp). No firewall between or on them - same switch, no VLAN. PortQry is able to talk to most of the ports you listen, but can I test random, temp ports with it when nothing is listening? Does dc02 need to be an FTP server as well? That might be an oversight.

Thanks for your reply! I just got my terminology screwed up, what I meant is that dc02 is an Exchange server first but also a domain controller, while dc01 is only a domain controller. :) I checked the IP settings. DNS resolution is not an issue, I can ping these machines both by IP addresses and host names (fully qualified or not). And other machines can browse dc02, just not the other way around. I've also used wireshark to see if I can find something, but decoding the netbios traffic is hard. ;)
