  • I can resolve my ftp site by IP and not by name

    I have a server loaded with MS Server 03 running Active Directory. I have a registered domain name and have a company hosting my DNS for me. I am a noob to the world of DNS so I am trudging through it the best I can. I am using routing and remote access on this server because I have two separate networks: one workgroup and the domain. RRAS is functrioning correctly as I can browse the internet from the domain and I can access the ftp server from the internet via IP but not by name.
    I this a DNS configuration issue in my end: my DNS records on my server and or the record on my DNS host???

    Ask your ISP to create an A host record (Something like ftp.domainname.com) and point it to your public IP address (you obviously have forwarded the correct ports due to being able to connect via the IP address).

    Hope this helps
