In my company the LAN is under a Windows domain called
We also have a website
www.mycompany.com which is hosted elsewhere. From outside our LAN the website is reachable, while from our LAN I get the following error:
10061 - Connection refused Internet Security and Acceleration Server
If I try to ping the address
www.mycompany.com from outside our LAN I see it actually resolves to a different symbolic name
blog.othercompany.com, then I get its actual IP
On our DNS under Forward lookup zones / mycompany.com I set a new host
www and assigned it the IP address
188.8.131.52. Then I can ping
www.mycompany.com from any PC in our domain but I still can't reach the website.
So I tried a different thing: instead of defining a host
www, I defined an alias
www that points to
blog.othercompany.com, and again I can ping it correctly, but it still doesn't work.
If I don't have an entry for www in the DNS I can't even ping
www.mycompany.com (obvious, but I had to try).
I've tried doing a test with portqryui, from within our LAN, and I can see ports 80 and 443 are open and listening. I've tried with multiple browsers, to no avail. I can't understand why I can't access the website.
Any suggestions? Thank you very much.
