Dear members of this site,
I am presently doing CCNA and took some exams of MCSE 2003 track. I have a very important
question to ask, it is actually regarding a DNS issue within the local network.
If there are 2 Computers (ComputerA and Computer B) both are connected to a switch
making a local network and switch is connected to a Routers LAN interface. The WAN interface of the Router is connected to ISP (Maybe ISP Modem).
we have to enter the IP address of the LAN interface of the Router in the default gateway
of the TCP/IP properties of the computers which are in local network inorder to make sure that they are able to access the network outside the Router(External Network).
But can it be possible that the DNS settings and default gateway of the Computers within the local network have the same IP addresses?
I have seen some senarios in which the computers within a local network have the same IP address in there default gateway and DNS settings. And the computers were able to browse website without any problem. I wanted to know that how can it be possible?
Can we make a Router also function as a DNS Server and assign it the same IP address?
I hope my question is clear
