I have an old NT network with a DNS server on a W2Kserver. The DNS server was never installed correctly and I do not know that much about it. Also, it is in very bad shape and I am afraid to do too much to it. I have two locations connect over Frame relay. One location has the NT domain controllers and mainly NT workstations. The other site does not have any servers and all XP workstations. I usually set up the XP computers at the main site with the domain controllers and join the domain. The XP computers that are sent to the remote site need an LMHost file to tell them how to connect to the domain. Then they connect fine. However, I am setting up two XP computers in the remote location and they can not find the NT domain controller to find the domain. Can anyone help me? Also feel free to explain it to me like I am a 5 year old.
