Help Setting up and "INTRANET" ASP site

Posted on 2006-05-03

Hey Experts,

I would like to set up an internal website for my company. I know how to do the site, code, database and all that stuff. But I would like the site to be easily accessible on our internal network?

Here's the Setup
We have 2 servers
Domain Server: Windows 2000 (ADMIN) - DNS, DHCP, Active Directory......
File Server      :Windows 2003  (MAIN)   - File Store and IIS

Then we have 40 or so PC's that connecto to this network, they are not part of the domain they only connect through network neighborhood.

I would like to run an ASP.NET application on the 2003 (MAIN) server that people could navigate to through their web browser??? This is where I get stuck.
I can give people the location of the default.aspx page but as most of you know you can't use file open on an aspx page you have to navigate to a URL for it to parse propperly. FYI Both the ADMIN and MAIN server have static IP's

Also probably a question for another group but when I join a computer to the Domain it gives me a username of -, this suggests to me that I could maybe setup the website to be something like

Any thoughts or advice on these issues would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in Advance.

    Server Side:

    1. Configure site with IIS or your webserver
    2. Configure DNS server and entries DNS record of that site.

     Like A record NS record WWW record.

    Note: without DNS you didn't access your website.

    Client side:
