New website does not work internally

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!

Internally are you attempting to hit the same namespace as external?   For instance:   www.mywebsite.com?

If so my guess is you need to put this DNS zone on the SBS server and point to the local IP

Or if pulling up the old website you need to go on the SBS and modify the DNS entry for www.mywebsite.com for the new IP, because its already there.

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?

Thanks, all I had to do was modify the DNS entry as you suggsted for the new website which had a new IP.
