Are you referring to this?
http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=smeserver

I've never heard of it, but what exactly are you trying to connect to? Did you turn on a web server and you're trying to access that, or...?

What are you trying to do?

Telling us exactly the same does not point us in the right direction.

I bet you just install and want it to work and you did not configure dns on your router.

Assign a hostname to sme, set a domain on your router and it should be possible to find it.

To learn how to set dns and hostname please use a search engine.

Why do i configure dns on router? The sme server is configured as server and gateway. And has a host name. These two computer in local network. Nslookup resolves the name of domain. Thanks

Yes ems is configured as server. What server is it configured as? Web, mail, database? Do you have a dns running on it? Do you have dhcp on it? Are you manually configuring ip addresses. Does it connect all your computers to the internet? Does it work? Is it connected to your modem? You can find the domain with nslookup, but we are not looking for the domain. Can you resolve the fully qualified domain name of that server?
Is it connected to your lan? Does it have the same subnet as the rest of your network. Is windows configured to use that server? Is the firewall allowing connections to and from?

Sir I am sorry to be harsh, but your question is like me asking why can windows 7 not install on my computer? I did not tell you it is a 286 from 1980. So you can tell me till you are blue in the face but there is no way windows 7 will work on it.

I am not willing to assist further until you tell us your network details and how these things are connected and what you tried to configure and errors you ate getting. We need those details to help.

If you are not able to provide those and indicate if the links posted before about dns etc helped you and what you have tried, I highly recommend contacting a local IT consultant.

Good luck sir.

Oh and if by some obscure way you are trying to tell us you configured the system that suicidaleggroll described and installed the samba server to act as a primary domain controller, then search google for joining windows to a samba primary domain controller.

1. I have configured as a domain. not email, nor database, nor web.
2. yes dns running on it
3. yes dhcp also running
4. configure to relase ip by dhcp server (same server)
5. all clients are connected to internet through this sme server
6. it is deployed on VMware 10.0 workstation.
7. I used "host www.google.it" it gave me ip address.
I used "host 149.3.177.23" (ip of google.it) it gave me "host in 149.3.177.23.in-addr.arpa not found
I think this is you asking me resolve fully qualified domain.
Because when i use "nslookup myservername" it resolves the ip address and "non-authoritative answer" is showing the ipaddress.
8. My problem is firewall. i thinkd firewall is allowing the traffic. what is the key point check this out.
9. I add the line "nameserver 127.0.0.1" into the /etc/resolv.conf file as per someone said on internet.

I am Still in the no resolved mode

If you can point out the reason of why I cannot connect to this domain, please advise me.

Ip resolution will not work ifyou do not have a reverse zone setup for the network.

Check all machines connecting to sme can get an ip address that is given by dhcp.

Set your dns server ip as part of dhcp server. You edited resolve.conf, that will be changed everytime configurations are changed on the system if systemd is used.


Nameserver 127.0.0.1 is wrong. Only the sme server can use dns like that. You have to open firewall port 53 and set dns to listen on your network interface, eg. 192.168.1.1 or the ip address you use for sme server.

After that then clients should be able to connect.

Fqdn i talked about is not google. It is sme server. You need to name it something like sme.company.it if you want windows to join the domain.

More infor- when i try using nslookup clientname on server, it displays the ip address
But using nslookup ipaddress of client it doesn't find any client

The other thing is just because i am very new to linux, i dont know how to do
1 open port 53 to listen server ip on the network.


My all clients getting ip from dhcp I assigned. Can connect internet.

It is a unimaginable thing to me to set up a reverse zone in linux.


Help me

Don't worry about reverse zone now. The server can get client ip because the dhcp registers the client host name. Your client cannot see the dns server.

1.)firewall is blocking it.
2.) The dns is not listening on network interface ip
3.) Clientis not configured to use the dns server.

To resolve.
1.) Show the dns confuguration file
2.) Tell us what ems is. You still did not tell us if it is the server linked in post number 2
3.) Show us your server network ip address
4.) Show us what you configured for dns in windows

1. Does DNS configuration file mean resolv.conf? Or other than it, where is it located?
2. This question is not understanding to me
3. 192.158.200.1
4. I configured win7 clients manually dns server address of server 192.168.200.1

2.) Are you using this?

Please only a yes or no response.

#english version

Please tell us the operating system you are using. Different operating systems need things configured differently.

Se puoi dirci che sistema hai possiamo aiutare. Le configarazioni non sono uguali. Quindi segui il link e conferma che quello sia il sistema che usi.
