How to route two sites from same IIS

I am a dns noob.

Ok, so I have an IIS server running sharepoint and team foundation server.

We somehow mapped through a forward lookup zone and IIS  portal.company.com to load our sharepoint from a browser.

Now I want to tfs.company.com to load our Team Foundation. We are using port 7777. I mapped this in IIS but when i goto tfs.company.com nothing loads. (though if i go to 192.168.1.1:7777/tfs it loads fine).

it must be something simple. Thanks!

Did you set this up through the http bindings on the site?

sounds like you need to add a host (A) entry on your DNS box in your company.com forward lookup up zone for tfs and point it to 192.168.1.1.

I already have the DNS, it works ok because if I ping from another pc to tfs.company.com it replies from the right IP.

Do i need to have an access rule or something on my router?

DNS can only translate a name to IP address. Therefore you can only translate tfs.company.com to a single IP. It cannot append the port 7777 for you.

What you should really look into is IIS host headers so that you can run different websites on the same server and on a single HTTP port.

You can edit the bindings in IIS to make tfs.company.com point to one website and portal.company.com point to another without having to add the port on it.

Agreed with brwwiggins.
Host headers will achieve the desired results
