  • Unable to view website

    Hi,

    Installed SBS2008 standard and all is working fine with the exception of any of the local clients machine on the LAN cannot view their website (hosted externally), any other computer can see the website that is not on the LAN.

    Its probably a tick somewhere that I have missed, but cannot find the solution, any help would be appreciated.

    Setup internet address = domainname.co.uk = working
    remote.domainname.co.uk/owa = working
    remote.domainname.co.uk/remote = working

    Are you able to ping the uri for the website from within the LAN? It's quite possible that it's an issue with DNS resolution. Can they access other sites?

      Thanks for the reply

      Unable to ping website from within the LAN, they can access all other sites even others on the same web server at ISP

      Server setting = IP 192.168.254.1
      Gateway = 192.168.254.254
      DNS = 192.168.254.1 (only primary is filled in)

      Router Settings = get dns from ISP
      Primary = 194.72.9.34
      Secondary = 62.6.40.178

      Thanks

        Have you tried clearing the local DNS cache? ipconfig /flushdns

          just flushed the dns, still the same, there are some mac's in the office but not connected to the domain, but as standalones, they can access the website.

          It seems that the pc's on the domain cannot view the site?

            Is the TCP-IP config the same on the MACs

              The mac's are on static IP's - not dhcp, with BT dns server's, not connected to internal domain

                Have you got any Group policies configured (i.e. proxy settings)?
                Also, how's your DNS configured? Any forwarders?

                  I see. L4ndy has identified what you need to look at. The issue must be with your DNS server.

                    Sorry for delay in replying.

                    No group policies or proxy setting created - standard setup
                    dns standard setup, NIC set to server ip - no forwarders

                    Going to client Thursday lunchtime, last time played with dns on workstations and set them to router dns settings, internet worked fine, but outlook did not with exchange, set them back to auto dns and all worked except this one site.

                    Would it be anything to do with the intenet address setup as this is the same domain name or sharepoint? on the server.

                      On the DNS server add a forwarder to your Router.
                      Configure the clients to point to your Windows DNS server.
                      See if that does it.

                        Re: Unable to view website

                        not wishing to sound like a plo?????, is there a wizard for this? or is it in the dns manager, conditional forwarders, is so then in there - the dns domain (is what - Server or router IP) - IP address of the master servers (I assume thats the server IP), do i select store in AD and replicate it as ??

                        Thanks

                          Hi Andrew,

                          There isn't a conditional forwarder you need to setup just a forwarder with the IP address of your Router. Note that there is a difference between the two.
                          Use this page as a guide to setup your forwarder: http://helpdeskgeek.com/networking/a...03-dns-server/

                            you are a STAR.

                            Added IP of router to forwarders, it also says that it cannot resolve FQDN, but its working and the client can now see their web site.

                            Thank you again
