My client just had a new website set up. It went online yesterday at 5pm. Externally, the website works great.

However, internally, the user (and server) get the old website when going to the same web address.
I figured that its because the DNS needed flushing, so I ran two different commands on the server CMD prompt:

ipconfig /flushdns
dnscmd /clearcache

The server is still pulling up the old site. I also cleared the cookies and temp files on the server and that hasnt helped either.

Any help is appreciated!

Who hosts the old website? Who hosts the new website? If you ping the website externally do you get the same IP address as if you ping the website internally?
