When we install our windows 2003 Server we planed to implement a web server, but we did not do it finally. We named the Domaind mysite.com and now when I try to browse any page that contain www.mysite.com/xxxx it shows it cant be display.

What modifications I must do at my dns settings to allow the people from my office to browse the www.mydomain.com/xxxxx pages?

thx

Simply add another FORWARDER in your DNS (since you obviously use your server's DNS for clients to resolve domain names):
expand DNS server, right click on your server name, and go to FORWARDERS tab. There you add another forwarder for domain *.mydomain.com and enter IP of your ISP's DNS servers to resolve this domain.

Hi, as Labsy said you will have to add another forward zone into your Domain Naming Service.
1.Open your DNS utility in windows
2. Right click forward zone, then New>forward zone
3.Name it "yourdomain.com" as far as the rest of your DNS is configured you should be familiar with this ie: integrated with active directory - forwarders etc
4. Add an "A" record for "www" then give it the ip address of your web server.

Hope this helps.

I has nothing to do with forwarders, you need to implement split dns

(this is assuming your internal domain name is different from external?)

Let's make it clear:
- FORWARDERS and Forward Lookup Zones do not have anything in common. FORWARDERS are instructions for DNS server, which tell it NOT to try to resolve some DNS query, but rather to ask some other (in most cases your ISP) DNS for name to IP resolving. Forward Lookup zone is DNS zone on your server, with all records, which are used to answer the DNS query to your clients.
-  SPLIT DNS is advanced but most proper sollution in case, where you have your public web servers INSIDE your local network. If your web servers are outside your local network, then Split DNS is not the sollution.
- So, if you have your web servers outside your local network, the simplest method is to use forwarders. If you wish to maintain zone records yourself, you may also create Forward Lookup zone for your external domain.
