Website address same as domain name .

Hello, since updating our network we changed our domain name to the same as our external website. This however has caused problems. For example:

Our network domain = 'domain.co.uk'
Our website = www.domain.co.uk

Problem is that if we try and access an address which ends '.hotchkiss.co.uk' like 'test.hotchkiss.co.uk' or 'www.hotchkiss.co.uk' we get a network password request box coming up. I assume this may be from our ISA server but any username or password we use does not work.

This problem is annoying as accessing the coorporate website from inside the network would be nice!

I feel the issue is down to the ISA server but we are not sure where we can allow the the access to the website.

note: I have already added a new 'host' in the dns called "www" pointing to the website IP but this has no effect.

Hopefully I have made myself clear and the problem can be solved ASAP.

Hi crogookah,
put an entry in your forward lookupup zone for        www     and give it the IP address of the webserver :)

crogookah,
also make sure your clients IE settings are set to "bypass proxy for local addresses"

Pretty much what Pete said should fix it.  I would just add that generally, when using the same internal and external namespace, administrative functions increase and become more confusing in general.  It can be done, sure...but it will increase administrative load since you have to specify which addresses are internal and which are external.  If the only thing you have to be concerned of here is the web site, then it should be no big issue.

General practice (to ease administration) is to have a seperate internal namespace like domain.co.uk.local.  Makes it easy to distinguish internal resources from external ones.

Well that has been tried and as I said I have already added 'www' as a host in the forward lookup zone.

Anyhow, I have just solved the issue and it was due to the ISA server having '*.domain.co.uk' in the Local domain table - wish I had spotted that earlier!

Anyhow, thanks for the feedback but it wasn't much help quys.
