I've got a server behind a router and I'm trying to use my server as my DNS and DHCP service. I have them configured correctly, and I can connect out through, but I cannot seem to get my router to forward DNS requests to the server. In my router settings I've disabled DHCP, I port forwarded port 53 to the server and I set the DNS to my IP of the server, and If I set a user computer to statically use the DNS in the adapter settings I can connect fine, but if I use dynamic settings, I get an error in the network and sharing center saying I could not find the DNS server.
I have a netgear R6300v2 router and a server running windows server 2008 r2. So, what gives? what settings do I have to change in my router for it get the DNS correctly? Statically coding the computers isn't really an option so please help? Thanks!
