|Afternoon everyone, came across this site, thought I'd ask the question.|
I work in a school, we have a .gov.uk domain name, we recently employed a company to build a VLe - virtual learing environment to be hosted on site; in short a web based interface that allows students, parents and teachers access to configured resources. Moodle.
Anyway, annoyingly the builders haven't followed the spec originally layed out.
Externally we have a domain name of www.xschoolvle.co.uk this has been associated with an IP on the VLe server to which external trafic is forwarded - no problems. However they, the builders, have configured the VLe in such a way that the content of the VLe can only be accessed when a user types www.xschool.co.uk in the browser. If you access the VLe server via IP you don't get the content.
They say I need to configure an internal DNS pointer for internal users to point to the IP of the server which normally is a simple thing to do; however the suffix like I said is xxxxx.go.uk, if I create a pointer is ends up like this;
I don't want to use rDNS, the reason we are hosting it on site is that the County provided internet service / WAN is at best unreliable - so as I understand it if the net goes down rDNS would not be able to resolve etc.
So ......................is there a way of adding a pointer into DNS that has just the co.uk suffix?
