DNS Issue when Accessing external Website using Split DNS

BSModlin asked
Last Modified: 2015-02-26
I currently have an Active Directory environment running split DNS.  I have ABC.local for my internal domain name, and our public domain name is ABC.COM.

I have configured a DNS Zone for ABC.COM to access certain things while inside the domain.....  Our company website is now being hosted externally.  It is accessible outside the network, but not from the inside.  I have added an A record "www" that points to the public IP of the webserver.  It still does not resolve.  The weird thing is if I put the IP in my browser inside the network it DOES take me to the page.....

What am I missing?
