I inherited an SBS 2003 network - 1 sbs server with 4 desktops. There are some issues that need to get resolved. The SBS server has a single nic. the linksys router has its dhcp disabled and the SBS server is the dhcp and dns server.
the sbs box is giving out its own ip (192.168.1.2) as the dns server and the router (192.168.1.1) as the gateway. They are on a static IP and the ISP manages the firewall.
their domain is managed / hosted by an outside hosting company - mail and web are at IP x.x.x.x and we use the pop3 connector in SBS to get the mail from the ouside mail host.
from outside the LAN, we can type owa.ourdomain.com and get to the OWA page on the sbs server and everything is fine (we had only port 443 opened on the firewall).
But why can't we get to it from inside. we wind up getting a http://sea.search.msn.com/dnserror.aspx?FORM=DNSAS&q=owa.ourdomain.com
Anyone know what settings do we need in dns on our SBS box? Another issue is that mail sent from the exchange server is bouncing back, and that's supposed to be related to a PTR record we need for our IP. so I want to fix to be specific for the owa host, not the entire domain.
I changed the actual domain to ourdomain.com so don't bother trying to troubleshoot the ourdomain.com!!!
