    Re: Adding DNS Entry

    What server and DNS system do you use? Windows, Linux or other?

    Re: Adding DNS Entry

    Assuming DNS server is installed on the server:

    Goto Start -> Adminsitrator Tools -> DNS

    This will open the DNS MMC

    What type of entry are you wanting to add?

    Ah! Try (in IE) going to your connection settings, clicking advanced and entering the URL in the 'Do not use Proxy' box.

    I am guessing that you have an internal webserver that you can access from outside school (from home for example) via a name.yourdomain.com and you want to use the same domain name inside your school network?

    Yes that is correct.

    that is the situation i am in, I can see it outside just not inside.

    I have a similar setup with a webserver inside a school network. How do you acces from the outside? is it via name.domain.com or domain.com?

    Re: Adding DNS Entry

    On your server open up DNS and create a new forward lookup zone for yourdomain.com

    Add a new Host (A) entry for vle with the internal ip address.

    Then on your clients do as Dos_Box said and enter vle.domain.com under the advanced proxy setting of IE

    Works for me here.

    Re: Adding DNS Entry

    Slightly off topic, I have a similar issue.

    I have a Forward Lookup Zone for domain.co.uk. Within the Lookup Zone I have our sub-domains which are all stored internally and accessible outside the network (ISA doing the routing).

    However, the top level domain.co.uk is stored on a web server remotely (setup before I was employed! Personally wouldn't have hosted it remotely, and I plan on bringing it internally again when the hosting contract is up!) My problem is the top level is of course accessible remotely, along with my sub-domains which are pointing to our IP and then routed internally, but nowhere internally on the network can we see the top level domain.co.uk.

    We get 'Page Cannot Be Displayed' is this something within DNS I need to correct?

    All help/advice greatly received as always!
