|Hello--I have a (hopefully) simple need. Let |
me know if I am descriptive enough, I have
limited knowledge of network/server concepts!
When a user within our local network puts in
a specific URL (i.e. "HTTP://COMPUTING.NET"),
I would like them to be redirected to a local
address (i.e. "HTTP://192.168.0.5/Comp/index.php").
I have a Windows 2003 Standard server acting
as our DNS and DHCP server.
Background--We have a locally-hosted service
that is accessible from the internet. We
have mobile devices (laptops and cell phones)
that access this service from anywhere using
the URL (HTTP://COMPUTING.NET). However,
while they are within our local network, it
would be faster and more efficient for them
to use the local address. They could have a
"local address" to use also, but I would
rather just use the one URL.
Basically, instead of the user going out to
the internet and then looping back into our
network, I would like them to just be sent
directly to the local address.
Thank you for any help!
