cant resolve dns

February 15, 2012 at 18:07:07
Specs: Windows 7
dns is hosted in zoneedit but cant resolve the mx record to point to my mail server
mail server is a member server in a windows 2008 domain

from the internet if i use https://public_ip/owa it works fine
but if i use - https://mail.company.com/ows - it is not resolving

in my zoneedit:

subdomain - mail
type - a
ttl - 7200
preference - 0
ipaddress - x.x.x.x (our public ip)

subdomain - mail
type - mx
ttl - 7200
preference - 0
hostname - mail.company.com


what am i missing?

I don't think it's setup to use https. What happens if you telnet to it?

I'm confused. MX records point to SMTP servers, so where does http or https come into it?

What ip address did you get back on a simple ping to mail.company.com.
ping mail.company.com

Also try :
ping -a x.x.x.x (servers public ip address)

i can ping my public ip.. the xchange server is a member server in a domain behind a router

if i ping mail.company.com - could not find host

clients use owa to access email that is why im using https
internally there is no problem

does "companyname".com resolve with a nslookup when not on the lan but from the internet independent of your company site?

Besides, Wandera's question, from a Linux or Unix box run:

host -a company.com

mail.company.com should show in the list.

unfortunately, mail.company.com is not also resolving even inside the lan

Does it resolve from home? Is port forwarding set on the router?


Another idea: add mail.company.com with the IP to the hosts file.
