    I have IIS running an internal website that i want to use on another
    computer - If i type in outside of our network it
    works great - however becaus ei am using a firebox it refuses going outside
    the network back in. so i need when users are logged on to my network (and
    have a private IP) for my DNS server to resolve to

    how can i do this?

    Do you have an INTERNAL DNS server?

    Do you use the same zone name (
    for both external and internal use?

    Create a record for on
    the internal DNS server -- if you have a zone
    for it this is trivial. If you don't have this
    zone then you will need to create this zone
    for the entire name ( and
    create a A record for that [now blank] host
    name in the same "zone".)

    If you have no internal DNS you will have to
    arrange for the firewall to deal with it.

  3. In
    Create a new forward lookup zone named,, in that zone
    create a new host record, leave the name field blank, give it the IP of the
    web server. Win2k barks at you saying (same as parent folder) is not a valid
    host name, click OK to create the record anyway.

    As info, Herb and Kevin are both telling you to create a blank host record
    so that when the browser looks for DNS will resolve
    it to the IP host Since the zone name is already you cannot fill in the value for the host record itself
    for that name.
