How to configure IIS for ASP .Net site RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-284642143 posted

    I have a site developed in VS 2008. Were using Windows Server 2003. Ive installed IIS which is used for multiple purposes. I now need to host a site without effecting the other sites.

    1. Reading around i believe i need to setup a separate static IP address, the server already has a static IP address. I guess i can do this via DHCP, but what if i already have another site using port 80?

    2. How do i configure DNS so it resolves to my site name? If i create a site called www.intranet.com, how would i configure DNS to resolve it to this name after i have IIS setup with my site?

    I would appreciate some step by step instructions please, or a link to a site with an example of how to do this. Thanks for any help in advance.

    1.  Why do you need another IP?  You can host multiple sites on the same IP and port 80 using the host header feature.

    2. There should already be an entry for intranet.com - you then just need a cname record for www that pointw either to intranet.com or the IP.

    Thank you. With regards to question 2, i cant still figure out what im doing wrong. I go onto our DNS server i see a few entries i.e. domain.local.

    So do i now need to create an entry called intranet.com inline with domain.local?

    I thought you used "intranet.com" as an example - don't actually use that as it's a real registered domain.

    Have your network/dns manager assist you with entering a proper cname record for your web server.

    Yes intranet.com is an example, but i didnt want to confuse this example.

    I prefer to know this myself as i would like to see the process involved. Could you redirect me to an article to help with this or another newsgroup? Asking others means i never get to see what happens so would like to experience this myself.

    Thanks

    As I am not a network admin I am not intimately familiar with the process myself.  I am sure Google would find the right reference or examples of the process for your specific DNS server or your network admin might even be kind enough to show/explain himself.
