    Default Intranet Redirect Help

    My boss at work wants to just be able to type in Intranet into the web browser and it take him to the relevant server and webpage

    At present they type in [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] or [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    but as say wants to drop out the supportcentre part

    So I can setup a DNS for "intranet" to hit the server but how do I get IIS to redirect from there to the relevant subdomain i.e. Intranet or Helpdesk

    Or do I just do it by setting up a default.aspx at the route of the webserver and handle the redirects with that?

    Just think there must be a slicker solution the a default page redirect.

    Thanks

    Don't think that helps? :-(

    Are you saying in DNS I give Intranet and IP and Port and use the port for the redirect? how do you set up IIS to redirect via a port?

    What's wrong with Favourites and a Homepage?

    If only for the Boss can you just amend the local HOSTS file to do the redirect locally?

    If only I could the boss wants rolled out to everyone and not wanting to mess with HOST files as we got in a tiz with them before grrr

    Favourites/homepages not accepted either.

    Its just a buzz thing but if they want it we should be able to accommodate it and as said getting to the server from an address like "Intranet" ain't a problem its the IIS side for it to not load up the default website but goes to a certain sub domain instead

    A CNAME DNS alias on your web server should do the trick. Set up a CNAME with the alias of 'intranet' and set the FQDN to [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. The
    'How to Create a DNS Entry for the Web Server' section on this page may point you in the right direction [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. I've tried this before but had some issues with IE trying to search for 'intranet' if you didn't put the https:// in front of it when typing it in which obviously becomes annoying for the end user.

    Thanks to Tzone

    Thanks for you help and yeah I am guessing if they put just "intranet" (and not [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]) into the browser it will go to Bing and search it :-( Oh well cant have everything can they ;-)
