We are running an application server that needs to be accessed both from an external IP outside the office, and an internal IP within the office.
Currently, when we are connecting to server.ourdomain.ca from inside the office, it connects to the external IP address.
Internally, we use localdomain.ca which is internal only and is different than ourdomain.ca
I am not very experienced at DNS, so wonder if someone could help outline whether this would be an easy fix for me to make on our Server 2008 R2 server?
We need to ensure that www.ourdomain.ca
still connects to the hosted web, but connecting to app.ourdomain.ca from the internal network will connect to the internal IP of the server.
If it is a LOT of trouble, then I guess I just add to the HOSTS files on each computer, but that is the last resort.
