I inherited an AD domain.  ourcompany.com
We have an external website ourcompany.com

I created a www Host(A) record to point to the external ip.
 Now internal users type in www.ourcompanyname.com and get to the external site from inside.

Everything has been good up to this point.

Here in lies the issue.

We have now added an external
subdomain.ourcompany.com

How and/or can we access the subdomain from inside ??
