Can Not Access SharePoint 2010 Site via External Domain Name.
Recently we had the PDC Emulator in our network go down. Prior to this we had Internet access ot our SharePoint via a registered URL. SSL installed.
Everything works fine internally and the external domain name resolves to the correct IP. Firewall settings have not chnaged

What I have noticed is we do not get the Windows Security challenge when trying to access it outside the network. We do when goign to external URL INSIDE the network
