How do I access SharePoint from a FQDN (fully qualified domain name)? I can access sharepoint from http://companyweb but when I type the FQDN http://companyweb.domain.local i just get the IIS welcome page attached. I need to be able to use the FQDN, how do i find out the FQDN URL for sharepoint?

I have access to IIS so i can check any settings

Hi,
what is returned if you run a ping on:
- ping companyweb
- ping companyweb.domain.local

Is it the same IP address?

If yes then you just have to change the Alternate Access Mappings in SharePoint Central Administration.

Which version of SBS / Windows SharePoint Services are you using?
With WSS 3.0 go to
Central Admin
then
Operations > Alternate Access Mapping
Edit Public URLs
and under Intranet field give "http://companyweb.domain.local" and Save

I've found a solution.  I've found the full URL I can use internally or externally for SharePoint. Its remote.companyname.co.uk:987/default.aspx

Thanks for your help :-)
