Hello all...

I am setting up a DHCP server and it wants a "Default Route" entry.

According to: 
www.cis.uab.edu/info/faculty/hyatt/network/glossary/glossary.html, a Default 
Route is a wild-card entry in a router/gateway routing table. It basically says 
to route any packets to unknown addresses to this address, and the machine 
there will be better able to determine the correct route to the destination. A 
routing table can also have explicit routing information for frequently used 
addresses, while the default is a catch-all for the remainder of the 
infrequently used destination addresses. 

I am still getting up to speed on some of my networking so forgive this naive 
query plase...
Can I just put my internal DNS Server as the "Default Route"?
