Hi, you can try adding a Host(A_ record inside your local DNS pointing imagelibrary to the local IP

hi, are you able to access the website by entering the IP address directlty?

if yes, you might want to do a "ipconfig /flushdns" to refresh the dns records on your PC.... and try again....

Have you setup a zone in DNS for mydomain.com?  Or do you only mydomain.local

Check list of ideas
1. Can you see the website locally on imagelibrary?
2. Is the site you want on port 80? or does it have another port number after it?
3. Does imagelibrary have the firewall on?
4. Can you ping imagelibrary from the machine you are trying to access it with?
5. Do you have a proxy? If so try putting the imagelibrary in the bypass list.
Cheers

When ping imagelibrary.mydomain.com does it resolve to the correct IP address.  Again I ask: Have you setup a zone file in DNS for mydomain.com?  Or do you only have mydomain.local?

aucklandnzAuthor Commented:
there is mydomain.com and .local

when i try to ping it doesnt resolve IP address

KutyiCommented:
do you have a host A record under mydomain.com zone for the host imagelibrary pointing to the internal IP of the server?  We are assuming you are trying to view this website from the same Network that the web server is on.  If you are trying to access from the www let us now.

sorry i forgot to say that the http://imagelibrary.mydomain.com is hosting somewhere else

and yes i put a record pointing to local server

KutyiCommented:
so is from the www you can't access or your local lan where the server is located.

aucklandnzAuthor Commented:
the website is hosted somewhere else, and no one on my network can view the page

we have windows 2003 server here which is our domain controller (mydomain.com)

KutyiCommented:
OK so your host record for image library in the DNS zone for mydomain.com on YOUR Windows 2003 server needs to have the IP address of your Hosting server; ie. NOT an IP on your local network but rather the IP on the WWW of your HOSTS server.
0
 
KutyiCommented:
You may also need to run ipconfig /flushdns on your PCs and the server after reset the IP to a different one.

i ping imagelibrary.mydomain.com and i put this ip address is but it didnt work

KutyiCommented:
Is your Windows 2003 server your Primary and ONLY DNS server for your clients and all servers?  Does your DNS server point to itself for DNS and does it resolve the IP correctly?
0
 
KutyiCommented:
Just curious, why do you have a DNS zone on your server for mydomain.com, are you hosting any mydomain.com servers on your network that require it?  Normally you would use the internet to provide IP resolution for services hosted outside, unless you are hosting something internally.
0
 
aucklandnzAuthor Commented:
all clients point to 192.168.0.10 which is my domain controller
in DNS properties in forwarders tab there are to external ip address of our internet provider DNS

KutyiCommented:
On your server when you ping imagelibrary.mydomain.com what do you get?
On your server when you ping mydomain.com what do you get?
On your server when you ping mydomain.local what do you get?
