Have you made an alias through MSLN for the address
so that it will direct itself to your firewall? It will also take a little
while for all the DNS servers in the "real world" to update. You get an
"under construction" message with the address because that
is the built in webpage on the SME box and of course you have not done
anything with that. Hope this helps
