DNS resolves internally but not externally
Posted on 2004-08-16
I have a dns server set to fastdomain.com its a set domain name and in working practise so i cant change its name.
DNS name FASTDOMAIN.COM
but my Q. is.
I have a server running DNS/EXchange/DHCP. called mailexchange
now i have a MS VPN server , using routing and remote services.
All of the users that access our network and retrieve there mail have to use a host file fix ,per pc to be able to access our server.
Every server thats inside our network is available via name IF , and ONLY IF u put there name and ip in the reservation of the DHCP.
OR if you place each one individually into the clients host file.
If on any client without the host file fix , i cannot PING mailexchange, but i can ping the ip 169.254.10.10. the most confusing thing is that every VPN is set to ip address 169.254.10.* and the dns as 169.254.10.10 witch is correct.
y does it not resolve to the proper name
in short all external clients cannont ping
and if they do ping it they resolve an external address of someone who owns fastdomain.com
any resoloution ?>.....
