Unable to access mydomain.com from inside SBS2003 domain mydomain.local
Posted on 2009-04-30
I have what I think is a DNS issue, but it has me stumped. Server is running Small Business Server 2003. The domain is named mydomain.local (not really mydomain, but you get the idea). The website mydomain.com is hosted externally, not tied to this network at all.
Domain users are unable to access mydomain.com from inside the network, but it works fine from anywhere outside the network. The server is also unable to access the site. You can access any other website without problems.
NSLOOKUP returns the correct IP address without error. TRACERT successfully connects to the remote host. I have tried putting the IP address in IE, but it returns "unable to locate". The hosts file doesn't have any related records. It only has the 127.0.0.0 record.
The system connects to the internet using a DSL modem with static IP. The DNS servers being utilized are the Qwest servers at 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168.
