    Any ideas why this is so, and what I might need to look at to correct this?

    Many thanks,
    Is you www. internal or external?

    If external, then you dont need one.

    If you mean where is it hosted, it's hosted externally. As I said, I haven't added a forwarder but I get that error - so there's obviously something not right.

    Just to ask the obvious - if you go through youir RBS - you have asked them to set up external IPs and DNS entries, haven't you?

    Have you done what I said or are you trying the * thing?
    Create a forwarder like I said above and it should work.

    Sorry ZH - only just noticed your response, didn't realise we were now on two pages.

    The problem with doing it your way is our default zone is:

    domain.internal

    and I've just created domain.co.uk as an extra zone.

    Should I still be able to carry out your recommendations?

    your forward lookup zone would be moodle.domain.co.uk then make the blank A record and it should be fine.
    delete domain.co.uk if you made it though as that could cause other issues.

    Just to verify before I do this....

    I have DOMAIN.internal and DOMAIN.co.uk

    You're saying to delete DOMAIN.co.uk and create moodle.DOMAIN.co.uk

    Can I create as many of these as I want? As I would also like whitelist.DOMAIN.co.uk to be directed as well.

    as long as you are not using domain.co.uk yeh you can delete it. Are their records?
    you can leave it for now as it wont stop the new areas working and yes you can use it for other things you need to map.
    E.G. {something}.whitelist.domain.oc.uk could be set by making a forward zone of whitelist.domain.co.uk and then you make A records for each "something"

    That seems to be working by carrying out those instructions. Cheers folks
