Have you verified that your firewall is pointing to the correct server?
Did youmake any other changes that would require changing DNS? You can check by using the IP instead of the DNS name.

Can you access the site form a different computer on the network?

The new site is using the same IP as the old site so there shouldn't be any need to change the. Since no IP was changed (public or private) then there shouldn't be any DNS change needed. No access from another system on the network or from an external system.

Does the server have a software firewall installed?

The binding is http to a specific IP address on port 80.

Yes. I can access the site externally by IP address so somewhere we have a DNS problem.

Can you access internally with the internal IP address?

Sure can. It goes right to the URL (which, actually, is redirected to yet another page, but that's another issue and is actually working correctly).

I don't handle our internal DNS (except in certain of our multiple domains, but not the main one). I'm asking the people who handle that if there might be an old DNS entry or a cache purge that needs to be done. I've seen that here before.

We've found the problem and fixed it ourself. DNS cache needed to be flushed.
