    DNS - route .org to .int while on site?

    While on site, if I do a tracert mail.domain.org I get an external IP address. If my internal domain is domain.int, how can I make it so all users accessing mail.domain.org are routed to mail.domain.int?

    note: We have one DNS and one domain with one subdomain of mail.domain.int (and we only have that because I'm playing/learning/breaking around in the DNS at the moment.)

    Do you actually want them redirected to mail.domain.int or would you be happy with mail.domain.org simply resolving to the same IP address as mail.domain.int?

    Also, are we talking HTTP webmail access or other services like POP3/IMAP?

    @AngryTechnician , I would like them to resolve to the internal ip of mail.domain.org. And this is for OWA initially.

    1. In your onsite DNS, create a new Primary zone named mail.domain.org
    2. In this zone, create an A record with a blank name and the IP address that mail.domain.int uses. Once created, it will show as as having a name of (same as parent folder).


    That's it.

    Even so, you could still do it using split horizon DNS...Which windows DNS won't do
