    I have the following ethernet network configuration:

    [​IMG]

    WAN

    Router 1

    LAN
    WAN

    Router 2

    LAN
    Computers
    ISP Assigned Static IP
    (W.X.Y.Z)
    Static IP (A.B.C.1)
    Static IP (A.B.C.2)
    Static IP (P.Q.R.1)
    DHCP Clients (P.Q.R.*)
    ISP’s Gateway
    No DHCP
    Gateway = router 1 (A.B.C.1)
    DHCP Server
    Gateway = Router 2
    ISP’s DNS

    DNS = router 1 (A.B.C.1)

    DNS = Router 2


    One of my computers is set up as a web server and which I can access it from outside my network, but from inside my computer LAN, I cannot acccess it.

    Can someone help me on how to configure the Router 2 DNS so that behind the router2, my website URL resolves to the local web server IP address?

    Thanks in advance,
    Moiz Tankiwala

    I'm going to have you also use the DNS from the router.
    Go to start>programs>accessoires>command prompt. Type in ipconfig, and try putting the default gateway in the web browser. What screen do you see?

    Thanks for your responses.
    In my setup I cannot use a proxy server.
    Jason08, the default gateway IP address in the browser pulls up the router configuration site.
    In my network, I have users who have laptops, and they access the company website from inside as well as outside the office. So I need to have the issue fixed via a local DNS configuration only.
    Is there any possibility of fixing this by setting up a local DNS server on one of the Windows Server 2003 PC?
