What is the easiest way to allow inside hosts to access a local web server using domain.com instead of the IP address?

Can I simply add an entry in the DNS server? I have a Windows 2003 Server with DNS installed. The web server is in the DMZ. I believe I was told that I can't use the domain.com from inside because of the NAT issue? Or is that only if I am using the IP address that is NATed? Let me know if my questions is unclear.

Just setup an internal dns server with the entries you need.

The DNS server is internal. Do I simply create a new record?

Yes. Create an "A" record that points to your internal server.

I tried to create an A Record that would point to my internal server and it wants to default to domain.local.

I need to point an outside address, for example www.google.com to an internal server instead of the normal server.

Is this possible with an A record?
