Thanks for your response Anthony, I’ve tried this that you mention, but when I remove the “A” record for the public IP, everything seems to work OK, but we still have one last issue
as I mentioned before: if I connect on an external network with a domain computer, it doesn’t resolve the DNS at all; I think that, because the machine is in the “abc.com” domain, it looks over “internal” and not “external”.
I don’t know if I explain myself OK?

Asunto: RE: [ActiveDir] DNS with same internal and external name issues
If I understand correctly, you are hosting a website on your internal network that you want users to be able to access, wherever they are situated; internally
In that case, you should let Name Resolution do the work for you: internally you should create an A record for
www.abc.com as well as one for abc.com (both pointing to the internal IP, or the VIP if your website is loadbalanced).
Clients on the outside of the network should use ISP name resolution, both when you host your own domain and when the domain is hosted at a Hosting Provider. Therefor
a www record should exist on the internet, pointing towards one of your WAN IP addresses through which clients can access resources on your network on port 80 and/or 443
In addition, VPN/DirectAccess clients will use ISP resolution when disconnected from the corpnet, and corpnet Name Resoltion when connected.
Be sure to add the necessary IIS Bindings to the website, so that IIS knows which website to render based on the host header.
