    I have SBS 2003 Standard with two NIC's and use Exchange with Smart Host.
    For some reason I can't view my off site hosted web site, it's a com. I
    have my internal named the same as the one I'm having a problem viewing but
    with local. I've been able to view it before but now for some reason,
    something has changed. Might have been after applying the latest MS
    security patches. Any ideas? My host provider is stumped.

  2. Hi Bob

    Can you view the site from the outside world? If you ping
    the domain.com does it return your static ip or your
    host's?

  4. Hi Bob

    Is 209.246.239.210 your Server IP or the Web site IP?

    Do you mean you AD domain is the same as the hosted .com? If so you will
    need to add an A record to your AD DNS that points to the outside IP address
    of your web server for internal resolution.

    Must be the website IP. I don't recognize the IP address.

  8. Go to DNS-server and add this A-record which is pointing to that public IP
    209.246.239.210.

    Sorry but, not quite sure what you mean by A-record. I looked in DNS server
    under Administrative Tools and I see forward and reversw lookup zones.
    Where do I work on the A-record.


    Go to DNS-server and add this A-record which is pointing to that public IP
    209.246.239.210.

  10. Hi Marina

    Just curious why he needs an A record when his internal
    Domain is .local?

  11. Sorry, overlooked the part that he had added .local. In that case, no need
    for adding records.

    Check the ie-settings. Are they pointing to the server-IP? Check the
    advanced ie-settings. Something in there?
    Can you get to the site from the workstations? What exact errormessage?

    This is nuts, I can see everything in the world but my own web site. From
    the client I get the standard can not display like there is no Internet
    connection, from the server, I get the MS option to check for availability
    of my site. Out of the SBS box Internet on a system not running through
    SBS, comes right up! What the?

    SBS Standard?
    Just a suggestion... check your Hosts and LMHosts files...
