I have a limited knowledge of server and what I am trying to do is eventually have my own exchange server controlling my mail. The problem that I am having is that any computer on my domain (which is the same as my website) can access any site on the internet except the one I have hosted with dreamhost. After troubleshooting with ping, tracert, and nslookup, and many searches on google it definitely appears to be a problem with the dns service on my server. I am running server 2008 R2 and have dns configured with a mx in the forward zone and a reverse lookup zone. Any ideas on how to configure my dns to fix this problem? Yes I know what I am trying to do is overkill, but it is good training. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Here are the results from ping, tracert, and nslookup
Ping - Ping request could not find host www…com Please check the name and try again.
Tracert - Unable to resolve target system name www…com
Nslookup - *** Domain controller (computer name of the dc)…com can’t find www…com: Non-existent domain
