We have brought a new webserver online all is well, but inside the network when you type in our url it goes to the old server.  I have changed the NAT on the firewall so all outside traffice is going to the right place this is an internal issue?

    I would check your DNS server records for the name..

    From a PC what is the IP address if you ping the server name (the URL part of servername).  Is it correct?  If it is the wrong IP address then DNS should be the problem.

    what happened to my post?

    Check your DNS settings on the PC.  It should be an internal DNS server, you need to update the A record on the DNS server(s) to the correct IP address.
