When you run Nslookup.exe at a command prompt, you receive the following error message after the DNS request times out:
You have no DNS server specified in your TCP/IP Properties. If you have no DNS server configured on your client, Nslookup will default to the local loopback address. Other utilities may react similarly.
To resolve this issue, you need to configure a DNS server on your client by performing the following steps:
- Click the Start button, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click the Network icon.
- Click Protocols, click TCP/IP Protocol, and then click Properties.
- Click DNS, click Add, and then type the IP address of your DNS server.
- Click Add, click OK, and then click OK again.
