go to start, programs, administrative tools, Internet Service Manager. Right-click on your website, properties, Documents tab. Make sure index.htm is the first one in the list. Index.htm is the 'startpage' of your webpage.

Sounds like your exchange server is set as the default gateway of the clients, however, the exchange server is not routing the LAN interface to the external interface.
If this is the case, you have to go into Routing and Remote Access on that server (or whatever server is your default gateway) and set up the routing tables, (or use the route add command).

How many NIC's are on your server??? If only one then it is a DNS issue. Your workstation stations should use the 2000 server as the DNS primary and the DNS config on the server needs to be config properly (remove the . in DNS) and configure forwarders to the domain. That way when the request from a workstation goes to the server it is passed on to the ISP DNS servers configured in the forwarder's properties Note you can only configure forwarders' if you remove the . (root) domain. The . means that your server is a root DNS server and needs no further lookups to resolve names. If you have 2 NIC's installed then you also have to configure RIP. With one NIC then you are accessing the internet through a FIREWALL OR ROUTER and it needs to be the default gateway for server and the server the default gateway for the workstations. With 2 NICS the default gateway on the server should be on NIC connected to internet and local NIC shouldn't have a gateway.
