Internal and Web domain

OK I have a Server with Win Server 2008 Std. R2 running a domain controller and a terminal server active on one box, I know, I know poor funding... Moving on...=) My problem is - I have all users logging on the TS from everywhere either from the local IP or through TS Web and they only use their profiles built on the server.  The problem is - the name of the domain i.e. operations (operations.com) and the website, which is not internally hosted, of the organisation is also operations.com.  So when users try to navigate to the company website - they get directed to an IIS screen.  Where in the IIS do I tell it to redirect the traffic to the actual address of the website.  I know changing the internal domain would solve this, but too much is in place at this point to go back so I come to the experts...hopefully you can help

Thanks

there's not much you can do to make http://operations.com work, but we can make http://www.operations.com work.

You can do it by following my instructions here and when you create the forward lookup zone create www.operations.com http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_3703-Use-iPhone-on-wifi-network-without-the-need-to-reconfigure.html

Ignore the fact my article is written for smartphones, the principle is exactly the same.  Just in your case whan you create the www.operations.com forward lookup zone and create the blank A record, instead of using your internal IP you need to use the external one.

I will give that a shot - right now my pocket cloud is being finicky so I will have to try a little later...

Thanks, I will let you know how it works out
