I am wanting to change DNS for the user to just put a name on the browser and be able to pull the page up...

the current url is -->  http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/page

xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx = ip address

I like to have the users just type in "page" and have the come up on the browser..

Anyone can assist me in giving me instructions on how to get that done??

I have a question to be able to guide you... what happens if you put just the ip address, will the machine still start in the page folder?

Ok.. I just tested your request and I found out if you just type "page" your search engine will kick in and do its job.

Now, for this to work you will need to thing about a standard valid address, something like companypage.net.  Once you find your name follow these steps:

1. Open your DNS server
2. Create a new Zone in Forward Lookup Zones with the name you decided.
3. Create a new Host (A) record with the server IP address.

For you to access the "page" folder directly you must either include it on your address selection on the browser or create a redirection rule on your IIS. I'm assuming you have more than one website/service running on the same IP so each one will be running on a separate TCP/UDP port.

Examples:

company.net\remote                 443
company.net\mail                      465
company.net\employees            80
