Need help configuring DNS subdomain for Microsoft Small Business Server 2003.  Currently my clients access Remote Web Workplace (RWW) by going to www.mydomain.com/remote.  I would like to have them connect by going to remote.mydomain.com.  How do I configure this?  I found an article at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Web_Servers/Microsoft_IIS/Q_21014268.html that explained a step by step how to for exchange.  However, the steps are not applicable for configuring the RWW.  Please help.  Thank you.

One way of doing this would be to add an A record for subdomain.yourfqdn.com to www.yourfqdn.com then tell IIS to redirect all requests to the RWW site.

This is a simple fix ...
You need to create the new a/c record in the public DNS for the name you want to use ... this is just a name record for your existing domain, not a new domain.  Enter the IP address of your current web server as the IP address for the new hsot record ...
i.e. if  ...     mydomain.com             = x.x.x.32
    then ...  remote.mydomain.com = x.x.x.32

Then in IIS create a new website.
use the same IP and port as the main site BUT enter the name of the new URL in the host header line.  Point it to the same sub/virtual directory that the main site is pointing to
i.e.  if ... mydomain/remote = c:\inetpub\wwwroot\remote
then  set ... c:\inetpub\wwwroot\remote as the default directory for the remote.mydomain.com site.

Once the DNS record is active it should work.  You can try it locally by making an entry in your host file

Would a host header work?

Sorry, I meant to say why can't you just put the host header value in the origianal site?
