I have a PBX phone server (3CX) that has a application users can log into so they can see their stats, answer calls....etc. If your familiar with 3CX it is know as MyPhone. We also have something that is a Wallboard to show stats for each queue. Just for the sake of this post, I will call the server, server01 with static IP 172.17.0.10. This is current setup when accessing the Myphone and Wallboard from a PC.

In IE or Firefox:
wallboard is http://server01:5000/wallboard
myphone is http://server01:5000/myphone

How can I get this setup in DNS so I can do it like this:
wallboard is http://wallboard
myphone is http://myphone

Just need this for internal use. Please let me know if possible.

Thank you,

You have to put alias names in DNS

So I should enter like this:

alias name: http://wallboard
FQDN: server01

No, this isn't possible with DNS, you can't create a DNS record with port number

Any reason you can't change the port number on the phone system to port 80? Or is this possible?

You cannot make a DNS record point to a virtual directory. This is Web Server function.

You need to create the following A records for your domain.
A   wallboard
A   Myphone

Then you need to modify the listening port using the Administration site of the PBX from port 5000 to port 80.

To  achieve the end result you want, you have to solve 2 problems, as pointed out by smckeown777, and by kdgoodknecht.

Here's a method that would make Rube Goldberg proud:
Create the 2 DNS records, then stand up a webserver that will then re-direct to the relevant IP address, port, and virtual directory

(That would work, but it's WAY more trouble than it's worth)

It sounds like more trouble then what its worth. Not sure if I will actually change anything. Thanks for all the information!
