I have a dual nic Windows 2008 Server setup with one public interface connected to the internet and another to a switch which is hooked into my LAN. I am running RRAS on the Windows 2008 box and doing NAT. The windows 2008 Server also runs IIS and hosts a small web site. All of my PCs on the LAN can access the internet just fine by means of the routing being done by the Windows 2008 RRAS service. The hosted website on the Windows 2008 Server box is accessible just fine from the outside, however when machines on the LAN attempt to access it via the external host name (ie: www.contoso.com) DNS resolves the address fine to the public IP, the browser starts to load the page but then everything just stops and the page is never rendered properly (a partial page render does occur). Accessing the site via the LAN using the local machine or ip address bound to the private nic causes the page to load successfully.
How do i fix this? I'm a developer by profession and I dable in networking (enough to be dangerous). Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.Internet | | [SMC] -- [public nic] \ -[Win 2008 Server] / [private nic] | | | [switch] | | LAN
