We have (lets call it webA) website that is configured under IIS on a virtual machine internally. On our registrar console for the domain it points to our routers ip address. However when i ping that domain(lets call it xyz.domain.com) it pings to the machine ipaddress that has the website with the hostheader(which has the domain we need xyz.domainA.com). This works fine as i when i access the website http://xyz.domainA.com
i am able to access the website
Now I have set up a different domain(abc.domainB.com) on our registrars console(like1and1.com). I have set up the A-record IP address to point to the routers ip address to. However I understand I have to change some additional configuration on that VM,so that i can configure a website running on that virtual machine(different virtual machine from the previous) to have the host header abc.domainB.com. However when i ping the domain, it just pings our router. How do I make it access the website in the VM.
I have turned off windows firewall. The first domain is for a website running on windows 2003 server.
the other one runs on windows 2008 server
