What is the best way to setup Win2k DNS for a small network? First a little background. The domain name is mycompany.com. We have an ISP hosted web server www.mycompany.com
. Email is hosted by the same ISP. We have 8 IP addresses assigned. We have a firewall/router and are using NAT with internal addresses of 192.168.1.x/24. Out of our block of 8 addresses we loose one to broadcast, one to the network and one to the router for NAT. Our firewall has a one-to-one NAT feature so the five remaining public address are assigned to internal addresses. We have an internal intranet web server on ip 192.168.1.200 that can be addressed from the outside as either http://home.mycompany.com
or 126.96.36.199 (random bogus number) for example.
I read the articles about having mycompany.com for external and mycompany or mycompany.local for internal. Minasi talked about a split brain DNS.
What would be the best way to set this up? The idea setup would be if my notebook users could use http://home.mycompany.com
for either inside the office or when they are on the road.
