    Your W2K3 DNS server and the remote DNS server have agreed to exchange
    UDP packets > 512 bytes, but obviously your router is not capable of
    handling this.

    You can disable EDNS-0 in your W2K3 DNS server by running this command:

                    dnscmd /Config /EnableEDnsProbes 0

    Once you run this your W2K3 DNS server will never advertise its EDNS
    capabilities and so will never receive a UDP packet > 512 bytes.

    dnscmd.exe can be found in the Support Tools.

    You can find more information on our support of EDNS here:
