    IIS help

    Hi all,

    I am having some real problems seting up IIS on our server. i have created a few html pages for a basic intranet, with a few links to different web sites etc etc. i am strugglig to find any guides on the net, my real problem is that i cant access the page unless i type in the server IP followed by the port i have set it up on. //[serverIP]:[portNo.]/ this works but i would rather not have to type that in every time. how can i set it up to be //intranet/ ??

    Does anyone have a written guide on setting up IIS?

    any help would be great

    Thanks

    James

    Have you set it up on a non-standard port? is there any reason for doing so?

    If you right click on the website in iis, select properties you should get an option for the ip/port of the site.

    If you set it to all unassigned it should pick up the name of the server.

    Or you could put a pointer in DNS?

    you will need to set IIS to use port 80

    Then in your DNS create a new record call it intranet then point it to the ip of the server.

    it is set up to run on port 8000.

    could it have anything to do with the LAN settings in Internet Properties?

    im looking at the bypassing of proxy for local addresses??

    guessing really

    that should be set to allow bypassing for local addresses.

    and then the name of your server can be put in there.
