  • DNS External\Internal

    i'm using Win server 2008 DNS and i tried to search for a solution for redirecting EXTERNAL domain into INTERNAL machine that provides web services.

    For example:
    i own a registerd domain
    i have internal network with NAT & Firewall
    port 53 forwards from my ISP DNS to my DC whitch is also my DNS server
    i'm using internal domain (eg. my.domain)
    i have a machine that provides web services inside the NAT with intenal IP

    What i want to do is make the web services avilable in the internet (without using special port forwarding (eg.

    I did add a new zone for the external domain and an A record but it didn't work, obviously .
    I tried to capture the packets with Wireshark, what i got is- my computers asks for the domain and the DNS resolves the internal IP, which isn't respond.

    I did find a way doing this the oposite way (redirecting internal to external), aswell for my understanding, normal DNS server isn't able to do this.

    does anyone have a solution for this probelm?

    thanks alot.

    Keep internal and external DNS seperate. Have your ISP or domain registrar host the DNS records for the external resources, and keep your internal DNS servers internal only.
