Hi, I am not sure if I can post this on Experts Exchange but i'm giving it a shot anyway....
An external company created our new website with a different domain and our internal network can't open this but from outside, we can open the website.  Someone said I might need to add the website to my local DNS servers otherwise my browser pushes the traffic out to the Internet.  Is this correct and how do I do this?

Try to access the websit using the IP-Adress and not the domain name.
I you can now access the website it maybe a DNS issue.
But I would guess that Eyal is propably right.
