We are running win 2000 server and setup the same domain name as our web site, chicagotech.net. held by someone. I had created a record - www  host, public ip so that the internal user open http://www.chicagotech.net, it will open our web (pointing to the outside IP). If we use http://chicagotech.net, it will open our intrenal web (point to the private IP). If I want to http://chicagotech.net pointing to outside web, which record do I need to create in our internal DNS?

Thought about it a little more and you may also want to think about this option (only other way I can think of)
put in a host of www.chicagotech.net with the correctly resolved outside IP, with your external web page running on a differnet box then the DNS record points to.
use IIS redirect (or meta tags) to redirect your internal page of chicagotech.net to www.chicagotech.net,  (which is on the DNS Server) to the external address of the outside page (Www) This way people can type http://chicagotech.net and just be redirected to the outside page, and as long as its running on a different box your still pretty secure

Will work, and although it's kind of a work-around for the problem, it's the only one I can think of
