Win2k - DNS, IIS & 'inhouse'

Win2k - DNS, IIS & 'inhouse'

Post by i_robot7 » Sun, 11 Jan 2004 00:28:08

I THOUGHT I had this figured out! I DO have it working but I'm sure
not at 100% Any/all help is appreciated!

1. Home Win2k Srv. w/ AD (
2. BellSouth DSL w/ Linksys 4port router. (
3. Running - DNS (forward/reverse zone created for domain, Forwards to
ISP DNS), FTP (G6/Bulletproof), IIS..other 'servers' (UT, etc.).
4. Router forwards FTP(21), WWW(80) & few other ports to (server)
5. Soon to be running - SQL & Exchange

Here's the setup:
1. Registered domain ( - same as AD domain)
2. Registrar updated w/ 2 nameservers from ZoneEdit
3. Setup ( = WAN IP)
4. DirectUpdate (service) (changes IP on ZoneEdit for domain)

1. 'WWW.' & 'FTP.' do not follow to WAN IP (no alias' in ZoneEdit??)
2. IF I point server DNS ftp, www 'A' records to WAN IP (updated by
DirectUpdate) - I can ping & browse www/ftp as outside would (VERY
good) but outside world still can't see them (DNS not going out
through server-ISP-internet-??)
3. DNS (blank) & servername both point to internal IP....what do I
create to point to WAN IP?? I can't create 2 'A' records for my

What I want is ONE 'pipe' that * gets routed to
router's WAN IP. MY DNS should take over. This way I can create as
many CNAME's in my DNS server that point to a single 'A' WAN IP

Hope I gave all the info. correctly. It's working now (I created a
few alias' in zoneedit & set those same alias' in my DNS to WAN IP)
but that seems 2x work!

1. win2k dns vs. win2k3 dns upgrade?

2. IIS 5.0, Win2k, IIS extension unable to open a socket?


I'm using ServerXMLHTTPRequest class from msxml4 in an IIS Extension
as I need to contact a remote web service.

However, while I can do an open, and set some headers, the actual send
fails. The code from the extension works perfectly well outside IIS on
the same machine, but not when wrapped as an extension.

Is there anything I need to especially configure with IIS (permissions
of some sort?) to allow this to work?

Please cc me directly on any responses.
