I am new to web programming.
I am learning IIS.
Within a company firewall, there is website, that is, I suspect, is not available to the rest of the world outside the firewall.
(I made this link up to look similar to my company link, where pepsico.net is in place of my company name).
How is the address resolved?
What is the process?
Is there a dedicated server that points all internal addresses, such as
to a particular machine and particular port? (If so, what is the name of the program or tool that keeps track of all these mappings).
IIS seems to let you create new websites that use the same port as other websites on the machine--it doesn't force you to create a new port for each website.
So how does it know which website to pick?
