I am working on a windows 2008 R2 domain that has the same internal name, company.com, as external name. Some changes were made recently by our web designer and now we cannot access our companies webpage internally.
Here's what I know:
1. typing www.company.com
into a web browser internally I get "page cannot be displayed"
2. pinging internally www.company.com
returns the correct IP of the companies hosting the website x.x.x.x
3. typing www.company.com
into a web broswer externally removes the www and resolves correctly to the website
4. typing x.x.x.x into a web browser internally and externally returns "default web page", a bit like website is under construction landing page.
Is this an internal DNS issue or web site issue?
One thought I had is, has the website been configured to redirect www.company.com
to company.com? If so, this could be the issue. My understanding is that this is fine for requests coming from outside, but it's not going to work internally for us because our Active Directory domain is named company.com. This means that there are already host records on our internal DNS servers that map company.com to the IP addresses of each of our domain controllers.
Any help in resolving this would be greatly appreciated.
