Hello all-Thanks in advance;
I have the web site hosted by cedant and I put in the DNS table the www line with the IP address of the web site and it work- great.

I created this problem myself when I install a second server and went and moved the exchange server to the new server while in the process of getting OWA working and configing the ISA server I messed up the web site viewing on LAN

The LAN configuration is as follows:

SERVER1-Win2k, SP4 which is domain controller, DNS & DHCP and has the file shares, print server and some dbase programs

SERVER2- Win2K; SP4; Exchange2k SP3 I configured the CA on this server, but I beleive in the process I messed up the ISA server1

When on the Lan I type the domain name www.domainsite.com and I get the error message page under construction. So my question is to be able again to see the domain web site again internally.

Sounds like you are using the same namespace (domain) both internally and in the public Internet, and you have Internal DNS servers that are authoritative for the zone.  

Create a record for www.domainsite.com in your internal DNS server but with the ipaddress of your hosted server (the public address). That should do it.

I have always had a www line in the DNS and it points to the hosted web site ip, It used to work before I messed up the isa server trying to configure OWA, I can have ISA servers running one on each server? server 2 support the OWA for exchange so what does server 1 needed for.

The reason I ask is because I'm removing the old exchange off server server next weekend which I believe I don't need ISA running on server1 anymore which leads me to think that DNS will handle the request correctly for externall web site?

I'm correct on this assumtion? right

I fixed it.

 I pointed the ISA default web sit on server 1 (it self) to the DNS server then reboot the server now the externall web sie is viewable.

Thanks for your time.
