If your ISP is hosting your external DNS, or if your external DNS server is located within a DMZ on your network, you don't need this rule.
If your external DNS server is located somewhere on your network, you need a DNS publishing rule.
- To create this rule, right click on the Firewall Policy container and select New -> Server Publishing Rule. Windows will launch the Server Publishing Rule Wizard.
- Begin by entering a name for the rule. In this case, just call the rule 'DNS.'
- Click Next. You will be prompted to enter the IP address of the server that you are publishing. Enter the DNS Server's IP address and then click Next.
- You will now be prompted to select a protocol. Select DNS server from the list of protocols and click Next again.
- On the IP Addresses screen, select the External checkbox and click Next, followed by Finish.
- You should be back at the main ISA Server console. Select the new rule and click Apply, followed by OK.
