Hello,
I am trying to setup a test sharepoint v3 site.
When I try to access the site using our external dns name it resolves to the internal netbios name of the machine. From http ://share.domain.com to http: //windowsname/desfault.aspx.
From SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration > application management tab > Web Application General Settings it is showing the web applcation name as http: //windowsname/
I don't know how to change this or even if this is what needs changing

Thank you for any help you can give me

Not too familiar with the sharepoint but does the web sites default document do a rdirect in ASP? Something like:

<%
Response.Redirect "http://windowsname"
%>

hi mdiglio,

There is an option in SharePoint 2007 called Alternate Access Mappings in Central Administration -> Application Management, which is useful in changing the accessible urls of sites to user's requirements.
