I need some help trying to configure my Intranet/Exranet. I have an Intranet that is IIS based, when my internal staff browse to it that will go to http://servername. I have a domain name of https://www.******extranet.co.uk. That has a public IP from our service provider. Both sites work perfectly but what I would like to do is for internal staff to be able to access the site using the full www. domain name. At the moment they get a page not displayed. Can I configure DNS to do this? The intranet is held on a Windows 2003 server.

In DNS you will need to add a new zone for your domain in your Forward Lookup Zones, so for example, if your website is:-

www.extranet.co.uk

create a new zone and name it...

extranet.co.uk

Then, in that zone, add a new host record, call the host...

www

and then point it to the IP address of your IIS server.

You will also need to make sure you have configured you firewall correctly to allow connections to your internal webserver.

And also configure the correct security on your website to ensure only employees can access the site.
