Ive just installed MOSS 2007 and im trying to set up my URL's so that the users can access an intranet web site by typing a URL without the port number.
The default URL I set up is http://camel:102
I want the URL to be http://tiger

Im not concerned with users on the internet accessing this URL, im only interested in getting local intranet users to access the site by using the ammended URL http://tiger

Im using Server2003, IIS6 and MOSS2007

Do i have to alter IIS6, DNS and AAM settings? can someone please explain the process.
Thanks

 Changing Sharepoint site url from http://servername:port to http://sitename 
For reference purposes: Current URL: http://sharepoint:4755
 
Desired URL: http://itweb 
  • Before going into IIS / Sharepoint, first we need to      create a DNS ANAME host record for the new host name of itweb      and assign it the ip address of the sharepoint server.
  • Open IIS Manager.
  • Expand the list of websites and      find SharePoint-4755.  Select site to see menu in right menu      pane.
  • In the Actions menu pane, click on the Bindings.
  • Click on the Add button on the Site Binding
  • Change the port number to 80.
  • Change the IP address to All unassigned
  • In the host header value field type the hostname you      desire, in this case itweb.  Click OK, then click OK on the web      properties.
  • Now go into your SharePoint Central Administration      and click on Operations.
  • Now click Alternate Access Mappings under Global      Configuration.
  • In the top right corner, select the web application      you wish to work with, in this case it is SharePoint-4755.
  • Now all Internal URL's associated with that site      should be listed.  In my case there was only one, http://sharepoint:4755.  Click on      the URL.
  • Now in the URL protocol, host and port field type http://itweb/ and click ok.  Dont change the      zone.  Leave it on default.
  • Now close SharePoint Central Administration and open      your web browser and type in the new URL, http://itweb.
