I have found a lot of documentation that would alow a router to be a dns server.   The command to turn on the server is "ip dns server"   This command does not exist in the IOS version I am running.  I am running the following c3640-i-mz.124-25b.bin

ip dns server

To enable the Domain Name System (DNS) server on a router, use the ip dns server command in global configuration mode. To disable the DNS server, use the no form of the command.

Hi Brad

I was going through feature navigator, and found that "dynamic dns support for Cisco IOS" is available only on IP PLUS and ENTERPRISE IOS images.. I see you are running c3640-i-mz.124-25b.bin  which is a IP BASE image...



are the IOS code levels you need to look for.. but this would incur a cost to upgrade IPBASE to IP PLUS, and i really dont think it is a useful investment to buy this image, for such a small functionality to work...

Hope this helps.. all the best
