Unable to reach External domain name (Win2k Server)
Posted on 2004-09-20
1. One of my customers has a domain name on the internet (xyz.com).
2. And some local technincan named thear internal domain to xzy.com also.
3. And also my customer has a static public ip-address.
To the problem, when my customer shall www browse to thear external domain they come to thear local intranet or no page at all. So i think, i just add a host called www. in the DNS and point it to the external ip-address of the www page. But alas, the people that are running the web hosting service has a virutuell server, meaning they have hundreds of web pages on the same server/ip-address. So i call thear support, and they say i can add a CNAME.
So .. how do i add a CNAME for an External domain, cant figure it out, as CNAMES seems to allways go to the local domain, Or is there anyother way for me to go around this, by adding some external DNS pointer to everytime a computer asks for a www. address they will be pushed out on the internet.
