    They are internal. I also noticed we have WINS running.

    It is possible your internal DNS has the incorrect IP for your external web server

    All our machines on our network get our DNS from an Internal server...which gets its DNS from an External server...which happens to be our ISP

    It would depend on if there was a zone for their domain already existing on the internal DNS server, it would stop there for resolution and not go external whether it was authoritive or not, we do it all the time.

    Our application server seems to think our website is at a wrong IP. The other server shows the right IP when doing nslookup. I also noticed I have the wrong IP on my machine when I run nslookup locally. Is there a way to fix this? I have flushed the dns on the machine that shows the wrong ip for our site, but that didn't work. Any ideas?

    our external IP is from masterlink. Our hosting is done through network solutions.

    I am still wondering how one server can show everything is ok and has the right IP for our external website, but the other server when using nslookup shows the wrong IP for our website. Very strange.

    All depends on WHERE these servers are getting the DNS from...

    Are both servers pointed to the same DNS server?

    What OS is your apps server? If it's windows, go to a command line and type

    ipconfig /flushdns

    If it still resolves your old site, check to see that nobody created a static entry in the hosts files. On windows, the hosts file is located in winnt\system32\drivers\etc or windows\system32\deirvers\etc

    Sometimes pinging the ip address you want with the -a switch will update your dns cache.

    ping -a x.x.x.x

    However, it's just as easy to flush your dns cache.
