It sounds like your normal network dns is point at the wrong server for that web site.

What does nslookup give you?

Are you using the correct dns server when connected to the 'normal' network.

no just check nslookup on your machine when connected to your normal network for the website that is in error.

so if its www.mydomain.co.uk then do

nslookup mydomain.co.uk

assuming you are running windows you may want to check your dns servers

ipconfig /all

and you can see your dns cache with

ipconfig /displaydns

some browsers cache dns so a reboot might help

Whats the ip of your pc and the ip of the server (internal). 67.199.78.24 is an external ip address.

I'm guessing that your dns is returning the external ip of the web site and not the internal one.

You can prove this by adding an entry to the hosts file of your pc with the internal ip address.

You can solve this by setting up internal dns entries for the internal network or by adding 'hairpinning' to your firewall/router if it supports it so that the requests stay internal - or just adding an entry to your hosts file.
