I am setting up a test envro at home to do my MCITP on but am having issues with DNS. I have installed the trial of 2008 R2 in VMware and installed the roles for domain\DHCP\DNS. I have turned DHCP off in my router but can only connect my machines to the net if i enter in TPG's dns server address. I have enabled root hints. Any ideas?

Sorry found a typo that was stopping it. I am still having issues with RDP though. I can't even connect to this machine internally. I have checked and RDP is enabled, Firewall is disabled. I have a custom port enabled 3395. I have tried to connect through telnet from the other server but no go.. Cant think of anything else that would stop it.

Try port 3389 for RDP.

I have that in use on another machine. I got it working by changing the port to 3396 (maybe 3395 is in use by something else??) Tried to change it back to 3395 and it stops right away. Strange..

You can have the same port open on multiple machines. From memory, I can't recall if 3395 is in use. But 3396 is. Are you trying to connect via hostname or IP?
