I have set up an Intranet web page on our network, but don't want my users to have to type the name of the server and the specific folder location to access this resource.
I am wanting to set up DNS, so that when the user types "intranet" - or some other catchy name like "CompanyNet" - into their web browser, it will automatically take them to the Intranet web page. As of now, I have only been able to point DNS to my server by IP address and not to this specific location. This location does not have an IP address, but a specific file location. How can I point it to this deeper file level location on my server?
My DNS already has an enty for "mail" that when typed it takes users to OWA, but OWA is located on another server that already has a specific IP address. How can I take this same idea, but apply it to a location that is deeper on my server hosting this Intranet site?
The folder that has my Intranet is located at \\servername\intranet. As of now if a user types "http://intranet
" in a browser it takes them right to our public Internet web page, which is hosted by the same server. Right now my public web site is accessible internally at IP address 192.168.1.2. I know very little about DNS, but figure that is where this change needs to be made.
I am offering 500 points to the person who can explain this process, and assist me in getting this set up correctly. Thanks!
