At work I have got a windows 2003 server (Active Directory environment with Exchange) and 10 clients with XP OS, Server 2003 acting as internal DNS

They are connected to a snap gear router which is connected to an ADSL modem.

We have got a work’s website suppose it is called: www.works.org.nl which is hosted with external provider I cannot access our work’s website www.works.org.nl from any PC at work but I have got no problem to access any other websites.

From work when I ping the our work website www.works.org.nl it times out but it gives me this ip address ,,,,,,,,,,not the real ip address please pay attention to last octet

From home when I ping our work website www.works.org.nl it does not time out (means there is a reply) but it gives me this ip address,,,,,,,, not the real ip address only last octet is different comparing to ip address at work.

From home I have got no problem to access our work’s website www.works.org.nl

1- What I did I put the IP address I got when I ping from home in the address bar of our work computer, it didn't work

2- I cleaned DNS cache by applying below

ipconfig /flushdns
net stop dnscache
net start dnscache

On the Active Directory I did clear DNS cache by doing this Administrive tools -- > DNS --> Right click clear cache,,,,,but still no joy.
or as explained in Figure C in the link below

Any other thought what else should I try ?

Hi, is this a private site or Intranet? Has it a static ip?
