    DNS Help I guess?

    We have HAP here and something has got me thinking.

    Our users use HAP in school for help desk, booking system etc. and use remote.school.co.uk. The requests go out t' internets to our webserver then back to internets then returns the results to the user.

    Is there a way I can redirect traffic to remote.school.co.uk using DNS so it goes straight to our webserver and not out to the web?

    I think what I've said makes sense!

    Ta

    Not DNS related but put : remote.school.co.uk

    As an exception within IE settings via GPO so that it does not go through your proxy server out to the internet etc so its treated as a local intranet site

    Or do you need it to use dns to do that for other reasons ?

    Just a long shot / thought etc

    No need to use DNS but I that was to me the thing to do.

    At the moment internally staff are using https://webserver/hap but it throws a certificate error because it doesn't originate from remote.school.co.uk. That's what made me think DNS could maybe do this?

    Add the https://webserver/hap to the trusted sites list via gpo or does it still give you that certificate error ?

    we do it with our internal web servers by using DNS zone of

    school.co.uk on the DC

    with an a-record "remote" for the server as it's internal IP.

    Any chance of a screen grab ( you can blur out the ip addresses etc so I can see what you mean ) if that is ok

    Scrap that, I've done it.

    @mac_shinobi

    1) Open DNS on your DC and under forward lookup zones create a new zone. Name it school.co.uk
    2) Go with all the defaults.
    3) Create a new A record that looks like this.

    That should do it!

    Same here, though I've hit a snag.

    It works on my DNS servers when I browse to remote.school.co.uk/hap but when I do it on a client it doesn't work. Strange!

    Are your clients looking to internal DNS servers, or going straight to firewall/internet?

    I've got the DNS zones like you, but I also have duplicate entries in our Smoothwall because some VLANs don't look to the DNS servers.

    All my clients look at internal DNS server1 and server4. I've checked DNS and my new zone has propagated over. I think I'm being stupid here and missing something obvious!
