Re: [PLUG] DNS problem

Go to a command prompt, and run the following...
This connects to your configured DNS server, and tries to resolve the name to an IP. If this comes back correct, then it's probably something with your network or firewall and should look into those. If it fails or says something to the effect that it can't resolve the URL to an IP, then it's something wrong with your DNS server.
You can also try adding an IP HOSTNAME entry to your c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts to see if that works as well. This file gets read before checking with your DNS server for name resolution.

Hi all,

I think someone mentioned this on this list a few
months ago, here's my problem, it may be sort of
dumb, but here it is...

We have an internal mail server in house which
runs DNS which everyone uses.  Our web site is hosted
elsewhere, I can't remember where right now.  So,
the mail server and the web site have different IP

The problem is, we can't get to the web site from
in here.  I know the IP address, if I put it in a
browser, that still doesn't work.  Way back in the
past I has a www entry in my DNS setup files which
solved the problem.  That doesn't seem to be working
now.  Anyone know where to look to troubleshoot

The website:
The mailserver:
