We have 3 domains, one of them was upgraded from NT 4.0 to 2003. They named the internal domain with a .com extension, contoso.com instead of contoso.local.
Now, when ever they try to get to their external web page, it can't find it unless they type in www before the name. ex. www.contoso.com
That is not such a big deal. However, they have two other domains they have created a trust with.
IP forwarding was setup in DNS to point the other domains to contoso.com.
NOW, when those other two domains that have been trusted, try to go to the www.contoso.com
web page, they are unable to access it at all. Even when they type in the www. before the name.
Do I need the ip forwarding setup in the DNS for the trusts, or can I remove it? Will that help?
