Windows 2000 Server
Posted on 2004-10-20
Learning the Ropes, excuse my lingo here:
I am fairly new to windows 2000 server. I have already setup a domain as host domain and set up dns, forward and reverse, I believe I did correctly. I have put an index.htm in mydomain.com folder, it will not show in a browser, neither IP, same results. It comes up: "The site you were trying to reach does not currently have a default page. It may be in the process of being upgraded." I know I am close, but do not know where to look for a problem or why my index.htm is not being shown. I believe with that error message I am real close, lost.
Also, I can do a successful test send and receive in outlook on a mailbox I set up with mydomain.com. However, once I try to send to like an aol account I get error message that it cannot relay the message, rejected by aol. Reverse dns wrong?
I am mainly a perl programmer so this is fairly new to me. I have had a very good friend help, but I hate to keep asking him. It came pretty far, now I am stuck. Mainly I cannot see my index.htm on the domain or IP. Also, cannot relay the mail.
Please be very specific so I know where to look for something, I will open another question if needed to be fair if I ask to much info.
Thanks in advance...Precision
