DNS-Client

DNS-Client (Standard 8 Module Reference)

7/8/2014

Review the settings, dependencies and any notes for the DNS-Client section of the Embedded Core module in the Windows Embedded 8 Standard (Standard 8) module catalog.

These settings configure the Domain Name System (DNS), a system for naming computers and network services that organizes them into a hierarchy of domains. DNS naming is used on TCP/IP networks, such as the Internet, to locate computers and services by using user-friendly names.

The DNS Client service is used to resolve DNS domain names, by querying locally cached information obtained from a previous query or by querying a remote DNS server.

Some settings are global, and others are interface-specific. Global settings apply to all network adapters on the computer. Interface-specific settings apply only to a single interface and may overlap with global settings.

This module includes the following settings.
