  • Differents Host configuration issue

    Hi all,

    Users of the company must have all the time messaging access.

    When the user is on the local network he click on batch file which modify the host entry by add the name and the ip private (129.X.Y.Z) of the messaging server. DNS private respond.

    When the user is at home he click on another batch file which modify the host entry by add the name ans ip Public (194.X.Y.Z) of the messaging server.
    DNS public don't know the messaging server.

    I think there is another issue with dns but i don't know how to proceed ?

    Thank for your help

    What messaging client and server is it?
    If the client can only accept one name, consider using split DNS

        Sorry - should have explained

        Split DNS is where you have records for your external name (e.g. domain.com) on your internal DNS servers, resolving to internal IPs. When a user is external, they will hit a public DNS server and pick up the correct external IP for the same name. for more info if you need to.

        Don't know enough about Notes to comment further...

          Ok thx for explanation.

          Can i add in my dns public (Provider) an entry A servername and PTR for IP address with the public adress of the server ?

          toto.mydomain.com 194.X.Y.Z in the dns public zone?
          if i do nslookup at home and after i enter toto.mydomain.com he respond with the ip public ?

            Yes, you should create the same record on your external DNS zone mapping to the public IP address so when you are at home, you resolve the name to the public IP.
