  • redirect internal DNS

    So we just put in an internal wifi network at a clients, for some odd reason, these idiots who already have a full running BES with BB Curve's, also want there personal iPhones to get email also. Previously they were using POP over the 3G network. Now that they connect to the Wifi they can no longer access mail.testcompany.com (testcompany being the email domain)

    If I attempt to ping it resolves to the internet address 208.x.x.x

    I want it to redirect to 10.0.0.1 while on the wifi (the internal email server)

    I would like to actually completly get rid of the POP on these devices and go with active sync. Since this is an SBServer I need to point active sync to my OWA address

    mail.testcompany.com/exchange

    I know I just need to change some DNS entries on my server. When I create a new A record to point to mail.test.com it adds on the internal domain name like so

    mail.testcompany.com.test.local (test being my internal domain)

    This wont resolve out

    Any help?

    Thanks guys!

    You would need a new zone (although there is a way of just creating the record itself).

      So I set that up, and created an A record for my mail.companytest.com pointing to my internal IP

      Ping resolves to the internal IP

      I cleared the DNS cache on the DNS server, anything else I need to do?

        Check you can access your website still. If not you may need to create a WWW record with the public IP.
        Then test your devices. If they pickup an IP (and therefore DNS) from the wifi then you should be able to connect to mail.companytest.com using the internal IP address.

          Ok so I had to create the www to access our website (pointed it to our host IP)

          I still cannot ping to the internal IP when trying to ping the mail.companytest.com

          tries to resolve to my external IP

            What DNS servers is the wifi giving out? It should be your internal one. From one of the desktops internally what response do you get?

              It is giving my server 10.0.0.1, I have been attempting the ping directly from the server itself along with desktops.

                  The entry was probably in the cache. Glad it is working for you now though
