Hi All.

We have needed to install a new modem router into one of our small size customers.

When within the firewall i.e. on the local network - when they type in ( is not their real web address) into IE it now displays their router config page.

The previous setup (i.e. with the old router) showed their SBS2003 entry page - which is what they want to happen now.

Just to confirm - SBS is configured correctly and works find outside of the firewall - i.e. when they type in their SBS page is displayed as it should.

From inside the firewall if they type the ip address of the server - insted of the www address - into IE then it shows the correct SBS page.

Can any one please help me as to why this is happening and how we can correct what the customer sees as a problem in that from within the firewall they want to be able to type their www address into IE and have it show the SBS2003 default web page.

Thank you and Regards
