  • PDC and PPP connections

    Hi all,

    I'm using a Win2K Adv Srv configured as a PDC.
    It has one NIC for my private network.

    When I open a PPP connection, the (static) IP bounded to the PDC hostname gets hidden by the dynamically assigned IP which was received from my ISP.

    For example, before opening the connection, pinging MyPDC returns 192.168.254.1 (OK) and after opening the connection, pinging MyPDC returns 80.178.68.138.

    During the PPP connection, the AD stops functioning correctly, with the following symptoms:
    1. the DHCP console cannot find the DHCP server;
    2. the DNS self tests fail;
    3. lot of "UserEnv (1000)" errors are logged (message: "Windows cannot obtain the domain controller name for your computer network. Return value (59)").

    Is there a solution to this? Or, I just cannot open PPP connections from a PDC.

    Thanx,
    Adrian.
