New server install, not in a domain, hosting 2 websites via IIS7

cpetit
We have a new server running server 2008 standard x64 and we are not in a domain setting. we have 2 websites that are running on this machine which is assigned a static IP from the ISP and internally static assigned by router. No one can see the websites locally... such as www.example.com does not return the website however if we use an external device the website populates perfectly. What do I need to do any help is appreciated.

    It's likely that DNS is only responding with the External IP of the webserver, but you need internal clients to use the Internal IP of the webserver.

    Options are:
    - put the internal IP + hostname in the hosts file on each PC
    - add the A records to your internal DNS server (will require you do duplicate the entire DNS zone on the internal DNS server)
    - if your firewall is Cisco PIX/ASA this can be resolved by using the DNS FIXUP command
    - use 3rd party software to return local IPs for only certain DNS records, see: http://dnsredirector.com/faq/59.asp
