Views/split DNS

13 Jan

We needed ‘mail.xxx.org’ to point to two different places, depending if a user was inside our network or outside.

Views were not possible here as we were downstream from parent DNS servers (if we’d put in a View on the external DNS server, we would have effected *everyone* downstream from our parent DNS servers).

Instead we created a zone for ‘mail.xxx.org’ on our own DNS servers, basically taking it over. Any requests to http://www.xxx.org etc still go to the external servers.
