I have a client whose LAN, domain.com, has the same domain name as their external website, domain.com. Usually in this situation, you just need to add an A record for www and point it to the IP address of the external website. We did this, and ran into the following problem:
It turns out that the web host is using the same IP address for multiple sites. When a user inside the domain.com LAN goes to www.domain.com they are directed to the proper IP address...but they get the hosting company's default web page, not domain.com's web page. Is there a problem with the host headers? Has anyone seen this problem before? The customer formerly hosted the website internally via IIS. Does this have something to do with the problem?
