I've got NAT setup through RRAS on Server 2003, and all my web servers\email servers are working when accessed from outside my internal network, but if I try to access them intermally, I can't get to them. The names resolve correctly to their public IP (being managed through RRAS NAT). Hoe can I get my internal lan to be able to access the web\email servers?

Using public IP internally not possible. What you can do is if you have a internal DNS server then you can configure the DNS server to resolve the name to internal IP address; or you can modify hosts files on each individual PC.

Thank you.

Setting up a seperate DNS server for few internal PCs that would access them would be a bit on the overkill side, although I have already looked into it. I thought there was a way to get this to work, at least I'm almost positive I've seen it work at other facilities in the past...

Ok, i've solved it - rather than have my servers behind RRAS NAT, I've only got my workstations behind that NAT, not everything works fine (with the exception of having to change a few configs on teh backup server).

I'll give you credit, as if i still need to place the servers behind the NAT, I will create another DNS server.
