This should be an interesting problem, but one I hope someone here can
point me in the right direction.

Problem: Can not access school website typing in the external domain
address (www.xxx.xxx.us, Public address = 63.164.xxx.xxx) when
trying to access it from inside the network. External access from dialup seems
to work fine.


Details: The mail / web server (netware 6.03) that is trying to be accessed has an internal address 192.168.xxx.xxx. When this ip address
is entered, the webpage works well from the inside. This address has a
static NAT translation of 192.168.xxx.xxx to 63.164.xxx.xxx. DNS translates
the address correctly, but when a ping is initiated from a workstation
inside the network to 63.164.xxx.xxx there is no reply, so when you enter 63.164.xxx.xxx from a workstation inside the school on a web browser
it fails to come up. This now leans toward routing problems and not
DNS.

Hops include from web server(192.168.xxx.xxx) to Cisco
4006(192.168.xxx.yyy), to BM private (192.168.xxx.zzz) to BM public (63.173.xxx.yyy) +
running NAT, to Cisco 2120 E0 (63.173.xxx.zzz), and out to the internet. All
subnet masks are for a class C address ( 255.255.255.0). The mail /
web server is completely behind the BM server. Packet filtering is
deactivated right now.

When our public domain is entered into a workstation browser, why
can't the web site or pings get back to the workstation? Any help
appreciated!
