Create Name to IP Address

I have 2000 server and I've already created in the Internet world a domain name (domain.net) that routes to my public ip address (206.xxx.xxx.xxx) that then routes to my private ip address (10.xxx.xxx.xxx).  Internally I would like to type in this same domain name (domain.net) and it route directly to (10.xxx.xxx.xxx) so my users can see exactly what the Internet world is looking at.  If they were to type in 10.xxx.xxx.xxx, they'd go exactly where they need to go.  My network was created with domain.local, so this is the only forward lookup zone that I have created in my DNS.  Seems like this should be very easy to create.

Hello
You can remove domain.local and create domain.net forward lookup zone instead(Active directory integrated if you have Active Directory ).Also create DHCP with Dinamic updates enabled for your internal clients( subnet 10.x.x.x).After all internally if you type domain.net or 10.x.x.x it'll take you to the same web site.
If you want to keep domain.local zone and you've already done some job there, create  forward lookup zone named domain.net. Then rigth click it and click Alias(CNAME) and follow it. Under "Alias Names" type for instance "www", under "Fully qualified domain name " type name of the server or computer you 'd like to redirect to(w2k.domain.local for exemple) or if you're not sure click browse and find rigth one and click ok. Now internally if you type www.domain.net it will take to the w2k.domain.local web site.So this way on the intranet you can have www.whatever.com
Good Luck

Almost there.  I would like to change everything from domain.local to domain.net.  I have Active Directory Integrated and DHCP is created with dynamic updates enabled.  I'll look into it a little a further and see what else may need to be involved.  For now, I'd like to just create an additional forward lookup zone called domain.net.  I did as you suggested, but it still won't open a web page.  I can't just type in site.domain.local internally and it go directly to the site in a web browser.  If I type in http://site/ it will.  What am I missing?

Ok let's do it step by step.under Dns console tree right click on Forward lookup Zones,click NEW Zone,click Next,select Primary Zone(does't have to be an Active Directory integrated)>Next>under zone name type domain.net>next>"Create a new file with this file name" has to be domain.net.dns>next>check Allow both nonsecure and secure dynamic updates button>next>finish. Now you have a new zone named doamin.net. Rigth click it, cilck New Alais (CNAME), under  Alais Name(uses parent doamin if left blank) type "site",under FQDN(fully qualified domain name)for target host type computer FQDN name which hosts web site(for exemple it has to be in your case pcname.domain.local, because you  have Active Directory integrated primary zone---doamin.local) Click ok. Now if you highlight domain.net zone you'll have to have all these:
           Name                                            Type                                       Data
 (same as a parent folder)        Start of Authority(SOA)     (1) pcname.domain.local, hostmaster.domain.local
 (same as parent folder)            Name Server(NS)                         pcname.domain.local
          site                                         Alias(CNAME)                      pcname.domain.local
Type in the address bar site.domain.net...If you still have the same problem ,then I suggest type site.domain.net under Alias name where you typed site as an alias before....I doubt it  but you never know...
