DNS problem due to website

By bradq ·
We have a website that is setup as http://www.clientname.com. We also have a Windows 2000 Server running DNS with the same domain name of clientname.com. We'd like all the internal workstations to use this internal server as the DNS server.

However if you specify it in the network settings when trying to get to the webpage it says its not found since its looking on the local W2K server instead of the Internet. How can I change our domain name internally without a lot of time and work?

here's a link to a Microsoft Help & Support article on hacking the registry to change the DNS name. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;290396&Product=win2000

The article # is 290396. If the link above doesn't work go to http://support.microsoft.com and in the search bar type in the article # then click go to get the the article.

in your internal DNS zone, create a host called www that has the IP for the webserver.

This will get your clients out of the local network, and connected to the internet.

Hope this helps.
