  • cant access company website anymore

    Hello,


    Last week I setup a new sbs 2003 prem for customer.


    When we goto their website from a pc on the domain it will not show up.


    I know why..........in the past we could get away with creating a shortcut of the websites ip address and it would work.


    The hosting company cant give us an ip address as the website resides on their network in an area where other sites are dumped and so we cant get our own ip address for the website.


    What do i need to do to access the website on a domain pc?


    Move to melb it and get an ip assigned to the url directly or is there something i can put in the workstations or server to allow them to see the website outside of the domain?

    Are you saying that the AD domain name is the same as their website domain name?

    If so...

    Are you also saying that you've added the A record in DNS for www and that it doesn't work? I would have thought it should...

    If so...

    You could possibly try a CNAME record rather than an A record for the host www, long term though as you've setup the AD with the website domain name, you will probably have to move the hosting to a supplier who will give you a dedicated IP.

    And in future, probably worth not using a 'valid' FQDN for Active Directory

      TPG are such a pain sometines but they have good plans.

      Make an entry in your DNS pointing to the external website. I am assuming it is an external website and NOT the companyweb (SharePoint) page that loads after joining the computer to the Domain using the Wizard.

        My office is right next to the coffee machine these days... and with the hours I've worked this week, I've been downing a lot of it. If you stand close to me you can probably hear a buzzing noise.
