we have a windows server 2008, we installed some websites in PHP, and we cannot see them if we are in the network, or placing the IP/website (actually the static data e.g images, css won't appear..), but if we put the name of the server in the explorer it works..., displays the static data without a problem and if we are outside the network, and we use the ip of the server we can see the websites without a problem, how can we fix it?? where can i start?

Technicall information:

* If: in a computer of the network we type IP/website or DynDns domain >> Fails to display static data
* If: in a computer of the network we type SERVERNAME/website or DynDns domain >> SUCCESS to display static data
* If: we are in the server, or outside the Network e.g in my house >> SUCCESS All methods (IP, DynDNS, SERVERNAME) works!!

We have dinamics IPs, and we have a DHCP using ipV4 and ipV6, and the switch is a netgear that does not need configuration.

Thanks for the help...

  • You say it is failing, how is it failing. Do yo get a page not found error, blank page?

  • which webserver you are using ? IIS or Apache ? anyway, you must paste some server error logs here. matching with requests when it's not sending the static files.
