Thanks, That worked for me. I don't know how this will affect lmce, that i'll find out with time. To reduce the chances of error I listed my core's ip as a forwarder. If my dns server can't resolve the name the core will try and if the core can't it'll send the request off to where ever the core sends recursions. In theaory if the core's dns server is doing something special, it should be able to continue doing it.
I needed this because my wife has an excel file with links to other files on the network. She used full dns names to create the links so the file started failing ever since i put the core in place. If any one runs into a similar problem all i did was:
ssh to the core
login and type, nano /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf
I replaced the ip address on this line with the ip of my server: option domain-name-servers 192.168.200.1;
save the file, restart the core. I couldn't get the only command i know to restart dhcp in linux to work so i restarted the core.
Thanks pw44! She wont beat me now that her file works
