Internally hosted web site will not work on the intranet with SBS 2003
Posted on 2006-04-26
We are running a managed network with a single SBS 2003 server. The DNS server is configured with the static DNS ip addresses of our internet connection. Companyweb and Remote Web Workplace are installed and being used. The outside domain (mycompany.com) is being hosted by the SBS server with Exchange installed and operational for email, with IIS using host header values for mycompany.com. There are 2 network cards installed, card1 is WAN, card2 is LAN. Everything is connected to a managed gigabit switch, including the firewall/router. From the outside, everything works fine. Client computers within the network can access the internet with no problems.
I have 2 questions, but the 2nd is not nearly as important:
1) Does anybody have any idea why mycompany.com is not accessible from any computer within the network? The error IE gives is "This Page Cannot be Displayed... Cannot find server or DNS error."
2) Is it possible to make mycompany.com the default web page while keeping Remote Web Workplace operational. We do use mycompany.homeip.net from DynDNS for Remote Web Workplace.
