Exact function of DNS in SME/contribs.org server
« on: April 06, 2006, 11:20:13 AM »
I have a client who has had an SME server functioning as a gateway, mail server, etc for a while (from version 4.x), recently they've decided to add a windows 2003 server for an AD, since AD is based on DNS, they asked me to disable DNS on the SME.

When I assign the DNS processing to another server (the configuration page says internal DNS server) does that server also become the default for external DNS requests?

I know this is probably answered in the documentation, but for some reason, I can't reach ibiblio, and haven't been able to do so for a year or two, seems like a deliberate block on their part, though lord knows what I did to them.
