I have a Server that has a DNN site that is ready to go live.  The problem I have, is I I cant get it to be public.  It is a virtual drive that apparently only the local computer itself can access.  I have added the alias in the DNN setup and even added an alias in the DNS with the name of the server (name.domain.com).  I have the folder itself set to where everyone can read and write.  I still cant access it.  How do i solve it and create it be dev.domain.com?  Btw the operating system of the DNS server is windows server 2000 advanced and the server OS of the actual web server is 2003.

It sometimes takes 24 to 48 hours for DNS to propagate throughout the internet.  Have you tried to get someone to reach it by static IP address?

You have manually typed in:

http://name.domain.com

and it did not go to the website?  DNS is not resolving or fully propogated yet.

Did you make sure that the registar for the domain name has your DNS servers listed for resolving?

We have available any name.ourdomain.com and I made sure of that.  the IP address/(directory) brings up the page from other PC now with no problem.  But I do type in the http://name.domain.com it does nothing.  I went in and added new host the name of dev.ourdomain.com and the pointer of it to the IP address of the server.  I assume that it is up to the aliases in the DNN setup to make it where dev.ourdomain.com to make it automatically point to the correct virutal directory?  Did I do this correctly and just have to wait a few days?
