Hi,
I have just recently build a new server loaded with windows 2000 Adavnced server. The server is setup as an internet gateway and email server. It has Wingate for the gateway and Mdaemon for the email server. DHCP and DNS are turned of in wingate and it is runnning Windows DNS and DHCP which usually works great. Everything is setup and working fine except that the domain is sympact.com.au and our website is sympact.com.au so when we go to browse to our website (which has a lot of web based tools that we need to use on it) the server tries to resolve it locally when it is not hosted locally (and dont want to host it locally). All other sites browse fine. Any help on how to get requests for sympact.com.au to go out the internet would be very appreciated.

You should put in zone forwarding, that mightbe enough.  Or, if it is resolving to itself, change the host name -- you "hurt yourself" if yuo actually made the local host name the same as your site.  A workaround would be to activate webserver on the new box, and have a rule forward all traffic to the IP address of the real site (or a www.sympact.com.au address, which is not the local host name).

You need to spoof authenticity for sympact.com.au on your internal DNS and enter all of the records in the zone file.
