I have web filters on all my sites and I run an intranet from my main site(behind my webblocker). In my main site all is well as personal are not going through the web blocker. On my out stations when I set my web blockers to active, no Intranet is available and I get the following message:-When trying to retrieve URL - http://xxxx.xxxx.xxx/default.aspx, the following error was encountered: Unable to determine IP address from host name for xxxxxThe dnsserver returned: Name Error. The domain does not existIf I set the webblocker to audit then they can get onto my intranet site? Any one any ideas

What DNS server is it using?Sounds like it is using an outside source.

I had this same problem. I ended up fixing it by using both of my internal DNS servers as my primary and secondary. (The setup guide says to use external as primary and internal as secondary. It claims there may be a performance hit otherwise). Once I put both as my internals then everything was fine.
