set domain for a website on an internal iis 6 using a windows 2003 server

Hi,

I have a windows 2003 server with iis6 installed and setup a site on there that can be accessed by going to 192.168.1.10 I am trying to find out how I can makes this a readable address instead of an ip number ie myintranet instead of putting 192.168.1.10 in a web browser.

Best Regards
Lee

Do you have a DNS server?  You can set that up in DNS, or you can go to c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts on your client computers and add

192.168.1.10      myintranet

To the bottom of the list

Then add a new record pointing 192.168.1.10 to myintranet and you should be good to go.. :-)

Hi,

I've never used DNS before im afraid. It talks about forward and reverse zones and all sorts. Do you know of anywhere that will give me a step by step to give me a clue on how to use dns.

Many thanks
Lee

Is this the DNS server that the PCs will be pointing to? You have to make sure of this before you setup the DNS server

Here is a little guide for setting up DNS for a domain http://www.simongibson.com/intranet/dns2003/
