Urgent !!!! WAN not really responding

By twitowsk ·
Hi all,
we got the problem, that we can't get any webpages, if we type in the name i.e. "www.msn.de". If we typoe in the IP-Address, i.e. "207.46.28.116" we get the page.
Any ideas??????

Our Network-configuration as follows:
1 PDC, 1 BDC, 2 DNS-Server (1 on each), 2 WINS-Server (1 on each), 1 DHCP-Server (on the PDC).

Regards
Thomas

Urgent !!!! WAN not really responding

Hi,
If you can get there via IP but not name then the problem is almost certainly name resolution. the 'www' should be tied in your dns to the name of the server hosting your website. Try and ping the hostname of the web server for a start, if you get a reply then try

http://yourservername

and confirm that this returns the default page from the server. If it does then check name resolution for the 'www' entry. One final point. If you have more than one address bound to the server (either more than one nic, or more than one address bound to a nic), then check that the site is configured to answer to that address (IE in IIS for example that it is set to 'all unassigned', or to the specific ip address that www should be resolving to). Hope this helps...
