If a dynamic update client is multihomed, it registers all its IP addresses with DNS by default. ( A client is multihomed if it has more than one adaptor and an associated IP address.)If you do not want the client to register all its IP addresses, you can configure it not to register one or more IP addresses in the network connection properties.

To prevent the computer from registering all its IP addresses, follow these steps:

  1. In Control Panel, double-click Network Connections.
  2. Right-click the connection that you want to configure, and then click Properties.
  3. Click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), click Properties, and then click Advanced.
  4. Click DNS.
  5. Click to clear the Register this connection’s address in DNS check box.

You can also configure the computer to register its domain name in DNS. For example, if you have a client that is connected to two different networks, you can configure the client to have a different domain name on each network.
