i think in server 2008 it sets two names one for inernal use and one for external what did you put on external have put it on different ports to see the effect maybe the port is already used by something else

can you have a look at this its basically saying the internal and external address should be different is that correct in your case?

You might want to exempt the internal traffic from going through the Forefront TMG or configure TMG to allow the traffic originating from the LAN to return through the forefront TMG to the LAN server.
Presumably it is used as a proxy.  Exempt LAN local traffic from going through the proxy and permit direct connection.

I did nslookup on a client machine and this is the resualts

C:\Docuements and Settings\admin>nslookup
***carn't find server name for address 10.0.0.10: None-existent domain
***Defualt server's are not available
Defualt Server: unknown
Address: 10.0.0.10

arnold:

How would I be able to try exempting local traffic from passing though the proxy server ? not 100% sure on doing that.

seems to me your dns server is not correctly configured try to do the same on server see what happen if you have multiple NIC cards it also causes the problem in 2008 if you run nslookup on server and it also fails then report back

Yeah I think I can explain most of that becouse I have multipal DNS servers and it was very slow internet access with Forefront as my router has DNS my forefront has DNS and my domain controller has DNS aswell

Which has the DHCP server? You can configure the DHCP to include the settings for the DNS which should point the LAN systems to the DC/Domain DNS. External DNS does not have a wqy to resolve the localdomain.  You might want to point the forefront DNS to the Domain DNS servers.

Are you using a GPO to set the Proxy on the clients?
Within the same section where you define the proxy option, there is a section where you can exempt the LAN as well as specific sites from going through the proxy.
