Not able to resolve web address
Posted on 2005-03-28
Ok I am hoping this is the right place for this question. If not please feel free
to direct to me the correct area.
I have a client running a pretty small network. Server is W2K Server, all clients
(25 ) are running W2K. We have just in the past month installed Exchange
server and taken over the mail server duties from an external ISP mail
All seems to be well with that side of things. After some DNS issues which
now seem to be resolved.. all mail internal and external is flowing. I am
sure there are some settings I will have to tinker with but at this point
all is flowing well and the users are happy to have email back working
Where I have now noticed a problem is that they are not able to see their
External website from within their domain. They can see any other website
without any issue... and I can or anybody else can see their website from
outside their domain but internally they can not see it.
Their web access is via NAT through a router. The internal machines point
to the DHCP box which is also the DNS box and of course it points to the
router as it's gateway... any IP's it can't resolve are forwarded to the
ISP DNS servers..
As stated they can see any and all external websites.. except their own.
I have to assume it's a configuration error on the internal side somewhere
as anyone external can see the site fine.. anyone have any suggestions
on where to look for this error? I don't have anything in event viewer to
go on... and would appreciate some gentle prodding of where to look.
Thanks in advance.
