Hi Experts,
I have a website by a local ISP www.moyola.com and www.moyola.co.uk. I can access the .co.uk site no problem but the .com one I cannot access due to chages made to my DNS settings. Can anyone tell me exactly what I need to do in DNS manager on SBS 2003.

I did a nslookup on www.moyola.co.uk:
C:\Documents and Settings\pauld>nslookup "-set type=type" www.moyola.co.uk
unknown query type: type
Server:  moyolasbs.moyola.local
Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    www.moyola.co.uk

And the www.moyola.com:
C:\Documents and Settings\pauld>nslookup "-set type=type" www.moyola.com
unknown query type: type
Server:  moyolasbs.moyola.local
*** moyolasbs.moyola.local can't find www.moyola.com: Non-existent domain

did you change your forwarder setting?  the purpose of this setting is to direct request to another DNS server if your dns cannot resolve.

Yes the forwarder setting have been changed would I need to change the setting to the same IP address of the www.moyola.co.uk site 209.325.144.9 ?

no, you have to change the forward to your isp dns . if you are going through a router(ADSL) , you will change the forwarder to your gateway ip.

to make it simple, which computer in your company can access the internet? what is the dns address?  use  that dns as your forwarder.

Sorry for the delay in the reply.

Client PC's have a DNS that points to the server.

And the server has a dns that points to the firewall. On the server I did a ipconfig /all command and it sees the dns as the firewall. Is there a better way to check you dns?
