DNS - Viewing Website Internally

we recently changed our web host provider to another company.
since then we have had issues viewing our site internally. externally it works (both in https and http)

internally i added a dns A record to point to the new ip... internally we are able to see the site but only in https, in http we only get text, no images.... if we browse internally the https site it will eventually revert to a page in http when selecting an item page... any clue?

thanks.

clear the cache on your DNS server and try an ipconfig /flushdns at the workstation and see if that works.

could it be a bad certificate?

Bad certificate has no bearing on http sites.  How many DNS servers do u have?

make sure all the DNS servers return the same entry by querying each one.  I use a tool called DIG for this.

make sure you have not added a 'host' entry in the DNS servers, or in peoples machines or on a proxy.

If you have a proxy, check it.  Clear the cache, restart it.

edster9999Commented:
The DNS server needs to be able to turn a URL address (like www.example.com) into an IP address (like 192.168.10.20).
To do this, it can pass it onto another DNS host (most of the internet addresses would be resolved this way),
it can look it up in its own DNS listings (this is where you put A records etc)
or it can find it using another method (not recommended) like in a text hosts file.

You need to see which one is resolving that address wrong and correct it.
Check the log files to see if they say - or check the files listed above

I was looking at the code of the website and found that the Iframes and pictures point somewhere else, therefore I added another  DNS record and it worked!
