I have a domain name that points to a server (ex computer name: MS-Server) on our companies network (ex domain:  This domain name can be typed in any where outside of our network and will connect to the server.  When people inside of our network want to access this server, you have to use the computer name (MS-Server), the domain name ( will show up not found.  This is a microsoft windows network and the server is a MS Small Business Server 2003 and the domain name of the network does not match that of the domain name used externaly.  Is there a way to redirect this external domain inside of our network to point to the server, so that the domain name will work both inside and outside of our network?
