I have a Windows 2000 Server running Active Directory and DNS. We have our DNS server configured to forward to the ISP's DNS servers. All of our clients are XP Pro. The clients' DNS is pointed at my Windows 2000 server.
Everything is working great except we can't get to our Web site. I suspect it has something to do with my DNS server because I can point my client DNS directly to the ISP's DNS servers and I can get to the site. The problem with leaving it like that is logons are extremely slow and we can't access the server when the Internet is down.
It's probably worth mentioning that we host our e-mail on an Exchange 2000 server and our Web
site is hosted offsite. Our domain name is the same as our Windows 2000 domain name. Is it confused
because our MX record is mail.MyCompany.com (local) and our Web site is www.MyCompany.com
(offsite)? Thanks in advance for any help.
