Cant browse external company website while on company domain?
Posted on 2013-12-02
Someone please shed some light on this for me, i know its not that complex but i cant figure it out :/
My client has a domain xyz.com. Their domain is hosted with GoDaddy and GoDaddy manages the DNS for the domain. There is a A record in place on GoDaddy that points to the IP of the website which is hosted by another company.
The website for anyone except folks at the office works fine.
In the office there is a Win 2008 R2 domain controller running DNS for all the client machines. The domain name of the internal domain in the office is xyz.com.
I have created a www record in DNS on the server to point to the IP just like GoDaddy but instead all the clients just get a blank white screen. From a mobile phone, any other machine on the planet they get to the site fine.
Is there some other type of record i need to add to the internal DNS in the office to make internal requests go out to the correct site on the net?
I have tried ipconfig /flushdns, clear dns cache, rebooting, etc...
