HI

I have installed a windows 2000 network with active directory. I have name the AD abc.com and all works fine. The problem is that currently our website is hosted at a isp. how do i change my isp to allow users within my network to see our company website, because currently they can't unless they put the ip address of our isp.

thanks

you need to use DNS Manager on the internal DNS server - add a host record to the abc.com zone - call the record www, and set the address to the external IP address of the website.

I'm having the same type of problem except that I can't reach the website by the external IP address alone

(i.e. 192.100.100.100/company.com)

- I've added the HOST entry in the internal Forward Lookup DNS but I still can't access the website

Is there another type of record I can add to fix the problem?
