There is going to be a simple fix to this problem, I know it. I've discovered an issue with DNS on our network. It only affects me, however I'm running via a WAN link from our head office.
Effectively when resolving some domain names I cannot get a resolution. IF I jump on our servers or a computer on the head offlice LAN the resolution is fine. If I set my computer to utilise an ISP DNS server rather than our internal Windows 2008 DNS servers, again it resolves fine.
I only have the issue when resolving utilsing our Windows 2008 DNS servers. And as I said, only across the WAN.
The majority of sites on the Internet work without issue, e.g. Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft. However other sites such as Experts-Exchange (I am writing this from our Terminal Server at the moment), TVNZ, Netgear wont resolve. I have used NSLOOKUP and extended the timeout to 15 seconds and the response I still get is a timeout responding to the query.
I've spoke to some people that have suggested a DNS record with a low TTL can cause funny issues but I have been unable to find anything online in this regards
All help is greatly appreciated.
P.S. Oh I'm running Windows 7, but have the same issue on my Windows XP virtual machine.
