Hello,

I have a Windows 2000 Server and when I ping the Domain Name, the IP address comes back as some strange IP that is not related to my Domain, can anyone tell me why this is happening?  Where should I go with this?

Check your DNS records within your DNS server to make sure you don't have any odd entries within it. You sort by IP address and look for the IP address.
