Internal hosts and external hosts


S

Hi,
lets say I have an internet domain called company.com.
The server is abroad, out of my company.
Now - I created Windows 2000 domain called company.com with DNS server
in my comapny.

-In the external(internet) domain of company.com I have
hosts(ftp.company.com, www.comapny.com, server1.company.com and so
on..)

-In the internal windows 2000 domain I also have DNS host for each
computer(workstation1.company.com, workstation2.company.com and so on)

-All the internal workstations configured to use the internal
DNS(Windows 2000 DNS).

-I've set up forwarder in the internal DNS server so company users
could reach external internet sites.


And to the problem:
when internal users try to reach external hosts of
company.com(ftp.company.com, www.company.com) the internal dns can't
find them.
I've found only one solution to this problem:
to map manualy each external host(ftp.comapny.com, www.company.com) in
the internal DNS to the right IP address.

Isn't there any option to forward the dns query of undefined internal
hosts to External DNS ?

any suggestions ?
thanks!

No. If you request a record from a DNS server, and the domain name of the
requested record falls within a forward lookup zone of a given DNS server,
then that DNS server will not use forwarders to seek out unresolved records.
