Interoperability with Other DNS Servers

Windows 2000 DNS is RFC-compliant and interoperates with other DNS implementations. It has been tested to work with Windows NT 4.0, BIND 8.2, BIND 8.1.2, and BIND 4.9.7. However, Windows 2000 supports some features that other implementations of DNS do not support. Table 6.11 compares Windows 2000 to Windows NT 4.0, BIND 8.2, BIND 8.1.2, and BIND 4.9.7.
