Chapter 6. Configuring Hosts

They were indeed a queer-looking party that assembled on the bank?the birds with draggled feathers, the animals with their fur clinging close to them, and all dripping wet, cross, and uncomfortable.

Now that you or someone else in your organization has set up name servers for your zones, you'll want to configure the hosts on your network to use them. That involves configuring those hosts' resolvers, which you can do by telling the resolvers which name servers to query and which domain names to search. This chapter covers these topics and focuses on the Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 resolvers (which are basically the same). It also briefly describes configuring the resolver in Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows NT.
