At work I have got a windows 2003 server (Active Directory environment with Exchange) and 10 clients with XP OS, Server 2003 acting as internal DNS
They are connected to a snap gear router which is connected to an ADSL modem.
We have got a work’s website suppose it is called: www.works.org.nl
which is hosted with external provider I cannot access our work’s website www.works.org.nl
from any PC at work but I have got no problem to access any other websites.
From work when I ping the our work website www.works.org.nl
it times out but it gives me this ip address 188.8.131.52 ,,,,,,,,,,not the real ip address please pay attention to last octet
From home when I ping our work website www.works.org.nl
it does not time out (means there is a reply) but it gives me this ip address 184.108.40.206,,,,,,,, not the real ip address only last octet is different comparing to ip address at work.
From home I have got no problem to access our work’s website www.works.org.nl
1- What I did I put the IP address I got when I ping from home in the address bar of our work computer, it didn't work
2- I cleaned DNS cache by applying below
net stop dnscache
net start dnscache
On the Active Directory I did clear DNS cache by doing this Administrive tools -- > DNS --> Right click clear cache,,,,,but still no joy.
or as explained in Figure C in the link below
Any other thought what else should I try ?
