Would host headers do it? http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324287
Quick question, hope someone can help, I think its an easy DNS or IIS one.
i want the users to just type "ePortal" in the address bar and it to \\server\eportal\index.jsp ?
we have eportal setup as a vrtual directory, if this is possible, could we also setup maybe "Eclipse" to go straight to out library ?
and also "Trackit" to go to another IIS virtual directory on the defualt website?
Cheers in advance?
The easiest way to do this is to add extra entries in your DNS server that point to your web servers IP.
You then need to set up a site in IIS for each of the ones that you want to redirect and set the listeners on these new sites to port 80 but with a host header of eclipse and eclipse.yourdomain.local
You should be able to set up these sites home directories to point at your desired locations or use a simple ASP redirect page to redirect the browsers to the full URL.
thanks for the replies...
sounds complicated !! lol
Its not very complicated to do, it just sounds hard, here are some sites that may help:

Am i right in thinking to get this to work that Eclispe (MLS.net) and Trackit should not be all be on the default website??

If you have not already added the aliases then:
Add DNS CNAME - ATT1 and ATT2
Create a new site in IIS for eclipse and set it up to listen on port 80 with the host header that you are using ie eclipse.yourschool.local and eclipse - ATT3
No that you have your site set up you want to make it redirect to the existing locations of your web apps. Do this under the home directory tab and set it to redirect to the original site ie http://webserver.yourschool.local/eclipse - ATT4
I think that the new site thing brings up a wizard so just enter the above information in where appropriate and it should all work.
