EE,

New install of SBS 2011, all working fine.

Have remote.company.com setup and working for email and remote access.

We host the actual website www.company.com elsewhere, but I can’t get access to it from inside the SBS environment, presume its internal DNS issue, but I don’t want to delete amend anything I’m unsure of.

Thanks.
Joe

If your internal domain is the same as external domain name, then
create an A record in your internal DNS 'www' pointing to your website server.
A record will looks like this after creation

www      Host(A)            91.140.230.236 (ip of web server)
