i have very little experience with networks, and i have a problem:
we've received a name of the mailserver we have to connect to from our deployed application (deployed on windows web server). This address is mail.xxxxx.nl
Now the application says it's not working because it can't connect to 10.18.x.x
Now we know that address is not the correct one, so we wonder: where does this mail.xxxxx.nl address gets translated to 10.18.x.x?
Can the server has it's own translation table, or do these tranlsations always come from an external ('official') server?
