NT4, IIS, DNS, Proxy=Internet Access

By cray ·
We are trying to install an IIS server for our website and get rid of our Linux server. The IIS server has to have two NICs to connect our lan to our internet connection securely. I've tried installing DNS, RIP, and a demo version of MS Proxy 2. Internet traffic can hit the website just fine from the outside but no one on the lan can access the internet or the website using the domain.com, only using the computer name works but traffic is not forwarded to the outside. What do I need to do to get the traffic going both ways? Is this a DNS problem, Proxy problem? I've also noticed that the download speed of the webpages seems alot slower on IIS than Linux. Is there something I need to do to juice it up a little. Thanks, cray@fssc.com

first you need to ensure that you have a DNS entry for your website. For access to the internet you will need to install the MSProxy client on each workstation. This will alow the connection to the outside world. Under Proxy check you LAT to makesure it is set up correct. For more info on Proxy and IIS go to http://proxyfaq.networkgods.com/htmlFAQ/default.htm

Good Luck

When I add the DNS entry for my site do I use the IP or the Domain name, I already had the Server's IP address entered. I'll check out that site. thanks,

well, first for your network to access the outside while you have the Proxy installed (if configured correctly), is to open each client's browser, Tools, Internet Options, Connections, Lan settings, and fillout the information for the proxy, withoutit, the computer and browser doesn't acknoledge the proxy existance.
For the speed of IIS, you can have a larger amount of bandwith ( a share of what you currently lease), increased for the Web access, thus reducing the bandwith available for your network.
On the IIS side, you right click on your Web site, properties, performance and set it according.

Good luck!

When I setup the Proxy server, I entered the entire range of IPs for our internal lan, it also added non-routable IPs. The connection between the IIS server and our router uses non-routable IPs should I remove those from the Proxy or leave them?

Hey there !!

was just looking at the other's answer and it looks like it could work, but the thing about walking around to each workstation is a little slow SO I have found a tool for YOU
make a little file and call it your DOMAIN NAME
eks.
dkprox.reg / remember to make it a REG file then put in your settings for your PROXY

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
"ProxyServer"="10.1.0.1:8080" and post it around on a mail, make the user click it to rollout, worked for me

Kind regards

Sounds like a good idea, what do I create the file with (notepad, wordpad, etc). In order to make it a reg file do I just need to change the extension or does it need to be in a certain format? Does anything need to be different for WindowsNT/ 9x machines?
