Show a domain name inside a network.

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
My windows 2003 server is connected to the web and has a external fixed ip address which in turn has a domain name tagged to it.

I run an exchange 2003 server on the same box and can access my email via laptop / ipad etc from outside by pointing the device at the domain name.

But when I am at home using a device on my wireless lan, I have to change the  email server address to the local name of the server.

How can I make my domain name work internally on my network to avoid this problem?

I would also add to make sure that Filter Internet NAT Redirection is not enabled on your router that you are using at home. This is specifically designed so that if you try to access a local system from a local computer using the public address it won't allow you.
