DNS and can't see internal website externally...please help!

We have a Wireless Push Server, for demonstation purposes, internally is With a 1-1 NAT on our firewall, it pushes to an external IP of Currently, if you were to go type in the external IP Address into the address bar in IE, a version of a OWA client would populate.

That server with the internal of and external of has "name" of WSES.domain.net on our domain. Internally, if you were to enter in WSES.domain.net into an address bar in IE the page would populate correctly; externally we get a page error.

How can I set it up on our server that entering in http://WSES.domain.net/ would take you to the same place that Http:// would? Is this not a server issue?

Are you using a vpn for external access? if not, do you have the domain 'domain.net' registered on the internet?

I have the domain registered on the internet.

Where should I put the pub DNS? How do I do it?
Most registrars have a web interface where you can change dns. There you would add an 'A' record of 'wses' and point the record at the IP. Since it's a new record, usually is available in minutes!

This is assuming your registrar holds DNS for you, which would be the case unless overridden.

This isn't done within the server? I'm confused
Your server can and does control domain.net, but only within the scope of your network. On the internet, whoever holds the Start of Authority (the domain registrar in most cases) is who answers on your behalf so to speak to the rest of the world for your domain. It is their servers that are answering for, and not knowing about the host on, the domain.net that need to be updated.
