i have 2 domain controllers in a windows active directory domain. the domain controllers are windows 2003 server standard edition. both are DNS servers as well. inside my firewall i have a file sharing web server, so inside my firewall people get to it by going to the internal ip address. outside of the firewall i setup a web address with my isp. i tried to make an alias entry on my DNS servers so that inside the firewall people could enter the web address of my file sharing server like they would outside of the firewall, however i guess i did something wrong and it didn't work. I have a poor understanding of setting up DNS entries on my servers so I'm sure it didn't work because of my lack of knowledge. So is there a pretty straight forward way to accomplish my goal of have people inside the firewall use the web address to get to my file sharing web server?
