So what all runs on it then? If its only a DNS server then 14 open ports
is plain silly. It obviously runs web, active directory (open on the
net???), ftp so what else?
Personally I'm trying to get my AD servers running with my linux DNS servers.
I get these errors on clients:
registration of dns records
_ldap._tcp.blahblah.domains._msdcs.thebeast.sme.dell.net 600 IN SRV 0 100
389 blah blah failed, operation refused.
I assume this is the MS-AD part of dns implementation, AD works anyway,
but I wouldn't mind a solution if anyone knows one.
