My windows 2003 server is the primeray DNS server for all the domain users while a unix server acts as a secondary DNS server.

Issue is: Ever since we changed our windows domain name to the company domain name,  our company web site has been unreacheable from within the company, but reachable from 'outside'. It does appear that the request IS NOT BEING FORWARDED TO THE ISP'S DNS SERVER.

We previously had a windows domain name which was different  from the company domain name and at that time we dd not have this problem. It does appear that THE PRIMARY DNS (WINDOWS SERVER) is trying to resolve it internally which is incorrect as we do not host our website internally.

Urgent help needed please.

If the domain name is domain.com inside and domain.com outside then the reqeust will never reach any other DNS server as your server is authorative for the domain.  All you need to do to make www.domain.com work is add an A resource record to your internal DNS pointing at the IP address of the real website.  Right click on the domain.com zone and choose New | Host and enter name as www and address as the correct IP
