Hosting a internal website on port other than 80 as *.domain.com?

Basically, I have an internal website (intranet) that runs on port 9676.

How can I make it so internal users can easily reach the site by means of typing in whatever.domain.com?

Must I move the site to port 80 or is there another way?

(Its a program called spiceworks and i think WSUS on this server already uses port 80)

Thanks

Create a Host A record in your dns pointing whatever.domain.com to the ip address of your sever.

Thanks I got that part. But how do I direct requests to port 9676 without messing with IIS - or can I? That is the question

you have to publish the site with domain.com:9676

wish the was a way to do this with dns...

or you can add another IP to webserver box and bind that IP to spiceworks

the you can add dns record for the IP

This might work. Can you guide me on how to do this?

Why not just setup your internal dns servers to resolve your new site to a new domain name and add this in your bindings.

The IP way the user will have to enter the IP address in the browser.

network and sharing>local connection>properties> IPv4>properties>advanced>add IP

the edit http.conf for spiceworks

This works in 5.1, I edited
C:\Program Files (x86)\Spiceworks\httpd\conf\httpd.conf

Listen :80 to Listen xx.xx.xx.xxx:80
and
Listen :443 to Listen xx.xx.xx.xxx:443

This allows you to run Spiceworks apache service on one IP and IIS7 on another.

you also need to bind your iis7 ip address to the other ip- that setting is in IIS in the site settings in 'bindings'

i have also heard that updating spiceworks might write over the http.conf file - so if you lose this function after updating spiceworks just edit it again

I ran into the same thing and I actually found it easy to do two things:

1. Run IIS on any other box directing "easy.domain.com" (and maybe another word like just "Intranet" with internal DNS and redirect with your method of choice to Spiceworks box "easy.domain2.com:9676"

2. Through policys make easydomain2.com:9676 a favorite in both IE and a desktop shortcuts with the easy Intranet title.

Just a thought...
