All,

 

After switching to a new ISP and getting a new public ip, I can no longer connect to the website from outside of the company local network. I have forwarded the correct ports (new router as well) and flushed dns on every computer I can think may have cached the record.

 

For some reason when I try to go to the webpage, (firefox with worldIP installed) it still points toward the old public IP address. Probably a DNS record issue.

 

Any thoughts on this would be much appreciated. I can switch back to the old net any time. This is a test phase.

I did not setup any of the DNS records, nor do I control them. I guess I will have to contact the DNS person...

Don't bother with hosts files.  Its DNS.  Most likely your domain name is pointing to the old ip address.  It needs to point to the new one.  If you have a www entry in your local dns server.  You would contact whoever is hosting your domain name dns records
