I am trying to use a CNAME on and internal DNS to point to an external FQDN. Currently I have a internal CNAME setup as sp.example1.com that points to www.internet.com
. If I open a command prompt and ping sp.example1.com, it says it is pinging www.internet.com
and pings the appropriate IP address. So theoritically it is working. However, in a web browser, if I try to go to sp.example1.com I get page cannont be displayed.
We are not using a proxy server and are NATing directly out the firewall.
Does a web browser treat CNAME's differently and what do I need to do to get it to work properly?
Any help is appreciated.
