Tutorial on Configuring Cisco Packet Tracer DNS Servers

DNS (Domain Name System) is an IP Address Naming System into a Domain, for example Google’s IP Address is 8.8.8.8, but if we want to access Google, only need to enter the word / domain Google.com. to translate IP to Domain, you need a DNS server.

Well, on this occasion I will share a tutorial on how to configure a DNS Server on Cisco Packet Tracer. Immediately we start, and the topology that will be used is

  • Open Cisco Packet Tracer
  • Add a Router
  • Add several PCs too
  • Add a Server that will be used as a DNS Server
  • Add the Switch too
  • Connect all devices according to topology
  • Router Configuration. Turn on the port to the DNS Server, then give IP according to Topology, give IP also towards the Switch as a Gateway for PC

Router> en
Router # conf t

Router (config) #int fa0 / 0

Router (config-if) #no sh

Router (config-if) #ip add 10.10.10.1 255.0.0.0

Router (config-if) #ex

Router (config) #int fa1 / 0

Router (config-if) #no sh

Router (config-if) #ip add 192.168.10.254 255.255.255.0

Router (config-if) #ex

  • Give IP PC0-PC4 according to Topology

  • Give IP to the DNS Server with IP 10.10.10.10 Netmask 255.0.0.0 and Gateway 10.10.10.1
  • Try checking the connection between the PC and the DNS Server with Ping
Ping from PC0 to DNS Server
  • Try opening the PC0 Web Browser, then Browse to the address OnTuto.com. because the DNS Server has not been configured yet, nothing should appear
  • Configure the DNS Server. Click Server0> Services> DNS> On> Domain names> IP Web Server> Add
  • Try browsing again from PC0 to the address OnTuto.com
  • When a Web display appears, the DNS Server configuration is successful. To be able to change the Web display, read also: Configuring Cisco Packet Tracer Web Server.
