Manual Entry for DNS

FattyPo asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
Hi I have inherited a domain which is in the format of companyname.co.uk not .local. The company use OWA which is accessed by http/s://name.companyname.com/exchange. The issue i have is that everyone can access the OWA external but not internal as i need to resolve the DNS entry for http/s://name.companyname.com/exchange to resolve to an internal IP while on the local domain.

IPAD/Phone users work fine externally but not when connected to the local LAN as the setup in the device is looking for the external IP not internal.

IS their anyway i can add http/s://name.companyname.com/exchange to DNS on the LAN to resolve to the internal IP address?

It is on a MS 2003 server with full AD.

Many thanks.
