I have currently a WSS 3.0 server (internal DB/Single Farm) running for our intranet and I use
http://intranet/ to access it. Everything works fine, authentication, permissions etc.
However, I've forwarded our external domain
http://beta.somedomain.com/ to IP address of our Intranet. The intranet loads fine but its just that sometimes the authentication box would pop up asking me to authenticate, sometimes it is successful and sometimes its not, even when using correct credentials.
I am assuming it has something to do with new domain and the way it tries to authenticate with AD as it uses beta.somedomain.com\username instead of ActiveDirectoryName\username
So whats the best way to add an external domain to work without any problems? I have set up "Alternate Access Mapping" and my configuration is such:
Internal URL Zone
