    DNS Help Please

    Hi all,

    I have set up an internal DNS forward lookup zone for schoolname.co.uk with an A record for remote. This points remote.schoolname.co.uk to our internal web server which serves some sites which works great.

    I've hit a snag in that schoolname.co.uk (our school website that is hosted off site) will not resolve so is therefore not accessible. Is there a way around this? My knowledge of DNS is limited!

    TIA

    Matt

    Can't you just add A record to your DNS server for your external web server?

    Yeah, just create an A record with a blank name and the relevant IP. An A record for www. is also a good idea.

    Well don't I feel stupid. I created an A record and it threw me an error stating that the reverse lookup zone could not be created. I thought that it hadn't worked but it created the record anyway. All working! I'll also add a www. too. Thanks Guys!
