Windows 2003 DNS


I need help adding a record in my dns server to point to our web server.
so that our users can resolve the webserver domain name to an internal address.

our internal address is 10.1.x.x
our web server is connected to our Pix firewall dmz port.
the webserver internal address is

the web address is

Also is there a way to add www to it?

open the dns console under administrative tools... expand forward lookup zones... expand zone... (if you don't already have zone then right click on forward lookup zones->new zone->next->primary->type in in the zone name->do not allow dynamic updates->finish.... now right click on the zone->new host... type www in the name field and type for the ip address... unselect create associated pointer record...  click add host... you now have the dns record needed to resolve internally...

this will not work however if your client computers are not setup to use the internal dns server as their dns server...
