    Exchange 2007 split domain?

    I would like my exchange users to be able to access the url https://email.school.sch.uk but internally they cant. I have been told to do a dns split domain but this doesnt seem to work for me. Can anyone help?
    Thanks

    Cpould be cached dns polluting the lookup, clear DNS on local machine ipconfig/flushdns and then do tracert to url.

    Could always clear dns cache on server.

    hi there, right just redone it all again from Scratch.

    So we have a external DNS ref of email.schoolname.county.sch.uk
    and what we would like is to be able to access this internally.
    "

    The url email.schoolname.county.sch.uk is working fine externally.

    a rookie when it comes to DNS, right so i've created a new zone called "schoolname.county.sch.uk" and added a Host A record with the for the name "email" and put the internal ip.
    After that i can now ping the email.schoolname.county.sch.uk and it giving me the internal ip and less then 1ms responses.
    Also i can nslookup the DNS and it gives me two entries first in the DNS server and then Email.schoolname.county.sch.uk which it again returns the correct internal ip.
    Tracert gives me the email server internal name and the correct ip.

    However if i browse to email.schoolname.county.sch.uk or https://email.schoolname.county.sch.uk
    internet explorer cannot display the webpage (IE) and in Chrome i get Error 324 The server closed the connection without sending any data.

    if i \\email.schoolname.county.sch.uk it gives me a log in box as if to access the shares.

    any ideas, thanks

    dont know if this has anything to do with it but if i use run \\email.schoolname.county.sch.uk and gives me a login box that i cant log in using as it doesnt accept local or domain logins, but i use \\severname or \\ip i get the servers shares.

    thanks

    Wondering if it is some form of binding to an i.p thats causing the issue (ala IIS website listening only on specific i.p) ?

    There is no specific IP listed in IIS?

    If we create a dns refrence in the local zone and add .local to the url we are able to access it fine.

    Hmm, I'm a bit puzzled.

    Exchange isn't my forte and it's been a while since I played around with it and DNS (tried setting it up with ISA server a few years back and encountered the whole split dns stuff).

    Are you using something like ISA/TMG on the network ?

    Hopefully this is a really simple issue but maybe not. reading through all of the above you have done the correct things for setting up and testing the DNS, but I wonder if you have a proxy server set for users to access the internet? If so you may need to add both the IP address and the domain name (email.schooname.county.sch.uk) to the proxy exceptions list so web browsers connect to it directly rather than the school proxy server?

    Regards

    Dave
