Hi There,

I need some advice regarding DNS. We have an Active Directory with the name space of xxxxx.com. Our public website is hosted by my ISP has the same domain name of xxxxx.com, when I try to access our public web site from our company network DNS cannot resolve the public web site as it does not know the IP and just points to the main AD server. How do I add a pointer for HTTP requests only that point to the public xxxxx.com web site.

Regards
Dave

On your DNS server, add an A (host) entry "www" in your forward lookup zone xxxxx.com, and set it to the public IP address.
When you now access www.xxxxx.com, your DNS will resolve that to the public IP.
