Publishing Intranet website

Dear All

Currently we have Intranet working using IP address link as http://192.168.x.y/intranet.aspx
but I need to change accessing the intranet using the IP address I want to access it by using any other name for example http://ourintranet/intranet.aspx without changing the server name and without effecting any settings in IIS.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

On the server running DNS (Most of the time it the domain controller)
Start> All Programs> Administrative tools> DNS.
Expand your Server [+]
Expand "Forward Lookup Zones" [+]
Right-Click your local domain name [+]
Select "New Alias (CName)"
In the alias field, provide the "ourintranet" name you wish to give it.
In the target host field, give the Fully qualified domain name of the server at 192.168.x.y as you gave in your example.  and example would be...   "servername.domainname.local"
Click ok and close DNS.

If all is well you should be able to go to a command prompt and "ping ourintranet" and it sould return 192.168.x.y.
You will then be able to go to http://ourintranet/intranet.aspx

I might also suggest that in IIS you set intranet.aspx as the default document.  then your users will only have to type "ourintranet" into there browser and the page will appear.

Hope this helps.
