    website access inside company


    by megamb ·

    I have a W2000 Server that is running DNC and DHCP, also have a Win NT 4.0 that is running the WINS.
    I have a company website that was being hosted by a webhost company and I switched to another webhost company. From outside the company the website, is accessable, but inside the company I have to use the website IP address of to access the website.

    When I go to it on the W2000 Server I get the following when a tracert is used:
    Tracing route to, Old Webhosting IP Address, and it never finishes, I receive Request timed out and cannot access the website inside the company on this server, this is the AD server.

    When I use the Win NT 4.0 and do a tracert on http://WWW.ourwebsite.COM, it gives the following message:
    Tracing route to, New Webhosting IP Address, and it finishes the trace, I can also access the website inside the company on this server only.

    Can you think of any reason why the W2000 Server cannot connect to the new WebHosting IP address or how to clear it out? This is important and internally I need it to access our company website.

    I have gone to the W2000 server and ran the following:
    nbtstat -RR
    ipconfig /flushdns
    Rebooted the W2000 Server
    and still get the address of the old Webhosting IP.
    Is there something else I’m not doing to flush this IP address?
    Any help on this is appreciated, thanks
    Note is not the actual website name!!!!!!!!!!

      cache on 2k server

      by lordinfidel ·

      In reply to website access inside company

      You need to open up the DNS mmc on your 2k server, right click on the server in the left hand side and press “delete cache”.

      Then to be on the safe side, go ahead and press under all tasks restart dns.

      This should take care of the issue.
