We have one server in the Intranet, which is acting as DHCP, DNS, Domain Controller, IIS, ... The server is in the DMZ and hosts some websites. There are several URLs directing to the server and with the former Netgear router it worked to access the external IP address and it would automatically redirect the DMZ.
With the new router, this doesn't work anymore, that's why I've added the domain names in a modified version (.local appended) to the forward lookup zone of the DNS server. This works now on the server itself, but doesn't work on any other device connected to the network.
As suggested in Intranet with local DNS resolution issues our DNS is the only one configured on the clients.
The server is running Windows Server 2012 and the clients are running Windows 7 and Windows 8. However running
nslookup on the clients gets the correct address but performing a ping afterwards not anymore, also
ipconfig /flushdns didn't help, any other thing I can try?
