Windows Dns Resolution
how can I get a local W2K3 DNS to obtain private IP for a public domain

Can somebody help...?

How can I get my W2K3 DNS server to obtain an internal IP address for a public domain...

It's probably a routing issue, but i'd like to try to resolve it with DNS...

I'm hosting a public server in my network (private IP: / public IP: www.mypublicdomain.com is pointed to

I would like for my internal DNS to return every time it is asked to resolve www.mypublicdomain.com

Can it be done? Am I violating some DNS principle...?
How do I configure my DNS server to accomplish this...?

Don't broadcast the website on the internal network

You can rename the node as www or you can CNAME it. In this instance if the outside world is also resolving the zone info via your W2K3 server, then you could lose visitors to your web server.

You can also nail the ip on HOSTS files of each and every machines.
